Jeremy Woodrum "has worked on Burma since 1999, organizing Congressional and Hollywood delegations to refugee camps on the Thailand-Burma border and organizing a nationwide boycott effort that resulted in 45 companies cutting ties to Burma's military regime. He produced a CD of top musicians dedicating songs for Burma including R.E.M., Damien Rice, and Ani Difranco. From 2005-2006 he helped spearhead a successful effort to place Burma on the permanent agenda of the UN Security Council, where it remains. He has been nominated for the Reebok Human Rights Award and been quoted in hundreds of media articles and television interviews including the Washington Post, CNN, BBC, and Los Angeles Times. He has been invited and spoken on Burma in 25 states across the United States and testified at the Congressional Human Rights Caucus." [1]
