Reggie Littlejohn-raising China's youngest political prisoner.

Anni Zhang was first introduced to Reggie Littlejohn over the radio. This is what Reggie recalls having said to her:

"Annie! I am so impressed with you! I'm impressed with your courage. I'm impressed with your intelligence, with your articulateness, with your poise, that at 10 years old you have the wherewithal to stand up against the Chinese Communist Party! If you could remain true, if you could remain humble, if you could remain pure, you could help lead your people to freedom!"

Reggie Littlejohn is the founder of Women's Rights Without Frontiers which works for the end to China's coercive measures to regulate population, including forced abortion and forced sterilization. She and her husband are now raising Anni Zhang, a survivor of China's one-child policy, and her older sister.
