INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ROUNDTABLE
The International Religious Freedom Roundtable is a convenor of NGOs and individuals from any and no faith that work for freedom of religion or belief
MULTI-FAITH ACTION ON USCIRF RE-AUTHORIZATION
The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom needs to be reauthorized. Without a continuing resolution, or re-authorization, the Commission's last day will be November 21st, 2019. It is valued for their robust reporting products, advocating for prisoners of conscience, and resources such as prisoner lists. While there have been concerns among some organizations over the original re-authorization legislation introduced in the Senate, the Congressional Working Group is launching a multi-faith letter to encourage the stakeholders to work together to ensure the ongoing mission of USCIRF.
HOW WE DO OUR WORK
We launch multi-faith initiatives and letters that any participant group proposes. We meet regularly both exclusively as NGOs and together with government representatives. Working Groups allow us to focus on specific issues, regions, or practice areas
There are multiple ways to be a part of advancing International Religious Freedom
Joining with diverse groups helps build momentum on policy. Any participant group can propose letters and float them through the RT for organization and/or individual signatures.
RESOURCES FOR ORGANIZATIONS
There are multiple ways to get more involved as an organization with the International Religious Freedom Roundtable and summit events
In eight years, the International Religious Freedom Roundtable has become the premier space in Washington, D.C. for practical policy discussions and coordination between civil society, government, and multilateral organizations. It has attracted representatives of 250 organizations and launched more than 100 multi-faith initiatives. These initiatives have been deployed by and for people from across the theological and political spectrum.
The IRF Roundtable is independent and does not represent any part of the U.S. or any other government. It does not endorse any event or legislation. All activities are led by participants for as many as want to participate
