House passes Hong Kong human rights bill with input from UCD students

October 15, 2019
At a town hall meeting Monday in Davis, a group of about 20 UC Davis students urged Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, to support the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. Less than 24 hours later, the House of Representatives approved the bill, sending a rebuke to Beijing, which has cracked down hard on protesters in Hong Kong.
