Initiatives for China 公民力量 Advancing a peaceful transition to democracy in China through truth, understanding, citizen power, & cooperative action
Initiatives for China, founded by Dr. Yang Jianli (杨建利), is a movement dedicated to advancing a peaceful transition to democracy in China by empowering the Chinese people to exercise their citizen rights (or Citizen Power, 公民力量) guaranteed them under Chinese Law and U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its our belief that real and sustainable progress towards a "harmonious" and stable society can only be achieved when citizens have the power, the confidence, and the capability to effect change in their personal and political lives. We further believe that citizen is best exercised in a peaceful and lawful manner and in solidarity with all ethnic, religious, and, demographic groups. -
