So you have probably heard us talking about advocacy a bit in the past. You may have even heard about a few of the campaigns we have done. But you wonder- why should I get involved?
If you are like me, you are probably not super involved in the political realm. You learned about the three branches of government in 8th grade or through ‘School House Rocks,’ but have forgotten most of what you have learned.
Much to my relief (and possibly yours), you do not have to know much about politics to get involved in the advocacy work of Open Doors. Lindsay Vessey is our Advocacy Director here and works with many of the political leaders in Washington D.C. She finds out what opportunities, bills and measures are available to help with international religious freedom and creates advocacy campaigns based off this. Typically all that is required of the end user is to sign a petition or to send a letter to their elected official. Not too shabby… it really is simple to do something that is life changing for a persecuted Christian!
Take a minute and check out this video- to hear more about our advocacy work and how you can get involved.
