John Kamm is an American businessman and human rights campaigner active in China since 1972. He is the founder and chairman of The Dui Hua Foundation, based in San Francisco with an office in Hong Kong.
Since his first intervention on behalf of a Chinese prisoner in May 1990, Kamm has made more than 100 trips to China to engage the government in a dialogue on human rights, focusing on the treatment of prisoners and conditions in prisons. He has made 13 visits to Chinese places of detention and attended two trials. Kamm and Dui Hua have submitted requests for information on more than 6,000 prisoners and have helped hundreds gain early release and better treatment. In the words of The New York Times, “No other person or organization in the world, including the State Department, has helped more Chinese prisoners.”
Dui Hua concentrates its efforts on encouraging transparency, accountability, and the humanitarian treatment of at-risk detainees, including political and religious prisoners, juvenile offenders, those facing the death penalty, and women in prison. John will be speaking to us about the work of Dui Hua and the state of religious freedom in China.
