Based in Washington D.C., our Advocacy department works to address current religious freedom issues on Capitol Hill and elsewhere. We are focused on building relationships with government officials who are positioned to assist persecuted believers through legislative efforts and policy development. We also collaborate with a wide array of human rights and religious freedom organizations in order to speak with a united voice on behalf of all who suffer for their faith in Jesus.
We also regularly conduct trips to visit countries where persecution is an issue, in order to document firsthand the impact of religious repression on individuals, communities and countries.
