Sending Office: Honorable Chip Roy
Please join me in becoming a cosponsor of the H.R. 6471 the Dr. Li Wenliang Congressional Gold Medal Act.
As many of you might already know, Dr. Li Wenliang was the brave Wuhan doctor who first sounded the alarm about the spread of the coronavirus. Dr. Wenliang was detained, questioned, and eventually forced by the Chinese government to recant his findings.
Had Dr. Wenliang’s findings been public, many more lives would have been saved. Before his death, Dr. Li stated, “If the officials had disclosed information about the epidemic earlier, I think it would have been a lot better. There should be more openness
I recently introduced H.R. 6471 to posthumously award the Congressional Gold Medal to Dr. Li Wenliang. Awarding Congress’s highest civilian award to Dr. Li would not only honor his brave actions, but also call global attention to China’s lack of transparency
and censorship of free speech.
Current cosponsors include: Crenshaw, Weber, Wright, Gosar, Steube, Riggleman, Yoho
I urge you to join us in support of this measure. To become a cosponsor or request additional information, please contact Hannah Arvey at Hannah.Arvey@mail.house.gov
