Meet Terence Htoo

Terrence Htoo has teamed up with the Campaign for a New Myanmar

Terence Htoo Terence is a Karen ethnic from Myanmar who immigrated to the United States when he was a teenager. He obtained a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from American University in 2018 and 2019, respectively. During the day, he works as a research associate for a research operations company conducting large nationwide surveys.

Ever since the February 1 coup, he spends his evenings and weekends taking an active role opposing the Burmese military and advocating for democracy in Myanmar through participating in lobbying, volunteering at fundraisers, and organizing protests.

Htoo is a co-founder of Save Myanmar Media Team, a member of the U.S. Advocacy Coalition for Myanmar, and an organizer at the Campaign for a New Myanmar. When he’s not busy doing the above, he enjoys playing soccer, reading historical fictions, or hiking difficult trails.

Htoo will speak about the situation in Burma and his experiences on Thursday, September 16 at 8 pm EDT (on Zoom!). This is for our first comedy fundraiser. You can get your tickets here. If you would like to learn more about the event or the comedians, go here.

We are continuing to work to get Congress to introduce and pass the Burma Bill. The pressure we are putting on the members of Congress is working but we need to keep that up. If you would like to reach out to your senators and House rep, you can go here. If you have questions or need help, please email Mike Haack.
