Ilham Tohti, the 2014 PEN/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom to Write Award Winner, is serving a life sentence in prison in China. As he was dragged out of court on the morning of his sentencing in September 2014, Ilham spoke the last words we may hear from him in a long time: “This is not just! I won’t give in.”

We hope you, too, will refuse to give in. Use this form to send a personal message of support to Ilham’s family, including his daughter Jewher, his wife Guzelnur, and their two young sons. PEN will ensure that all of your messages are translated and transmitted to Ilham’s family.
