.@olympics Committee is actively helping China cover #Pengshuai's detention & abuse. Just like they've helped cover up the #UyghurGenocide & other crimes by failing to even acknowledge it is happening. This is a moment to become an ally. #AthletesWanted- Athletes, let's talk!

This book, based on my personal experiences, is an effort to illuminate and bring awareness to the dangers of the CCP. Despite living in free world, I’ve continued to face injustices. I’ve been deprived of my freedom. My dignity has been trampled upon, detained, interrogated
