Organizing the Premier Annual Religious Freedom Summit in the U.S


The issue of international religious freedom touches every culture, nation, religion, and political system. Its implications are appreciatively complex and innumerable. The IRF Summit 2021 will bring together the broad coalition that passionately supports religious freedom around the globe. Together we will develop a coalition for religious freedom in a wide variety of countries using an array of mechanisms best suited for each circumstance. We will connect resources and advocates interested in religious freedom. Bringing attention to the plight of religious adherents who are persecuted, individually and collectively, as well as growing the grassroots and global movement for religious freedom. Together we will gain political support for the global religious freedom movement and embolden religious groups, civil society, and governments to take stands for religious freedom.
