Who we are?

The Montagnards Stand for Justice (MSFJ) is a vital organization founded in 2019 by Y Phic Hdok, Y Quynh Bdap, Y Pher Hdrue, and other dedicated Montagnard human rights activists. Registered in the USA, the MSFJ boldly advocates for the fundamental rights of the Montagnard people, who are indigenous to Vietnam’s Central Highlands.

Tragically, many MSFJ members have endured severe religious persecution and unjust land grabbing. Despite the Vietnamese government’s baseless designation of the MSFJ as a terrorist group, the organization has consistently upheld peaceful advocacy without engaging in any violent activities.

The Montagnard people have a storied history of courageously fighting alongside American forces during the Vietnam War, with their loyalty and contributions well-documented. Post-war, countless Montagnards faced severe persecution and discrimination in Vietnam, forcing many to seek refuge in countries like the USA. The MSFJ tirelessly works to raise global awareness about the numerous challenges confronting the Montagnard community and fervently advocates for their rights and freedoms.

It is a disgrace that the Vietnamese Government has unjustly labeled this group as a terrorist organization, solely due to their reports of human rights violations to esteemed organizations like Human Rights Watch (HRW). This labeling stems from the government’s discomfort with international scrutiny. We must continue to shed light on these critical issues and stand unwaveringly for the truth. Failure to do so will result in the continued suffering, imprisonment, and even death of many Montagnard Christians and persecuted church leaders.

Hundreds of reports documenting human rights violations have been submitted to the United Nations. The MSFJ’s work is paramount in advocating for the rights of the voiceless in the Central Highlands of Vietnam.
