“Standing for religious freedom for everyone, everywhere, all the time.”
These words serve as the theme of The 2021 International Religious Freedom Summit, at which advocates for religious freedom will gather July 13-15 in Washington, D.C.
An estimated nearly 300 million Christians live under persecution for their faith worldwide.
One of the reasons the summit was started was to gather resources and encourage people together to stand up for those being persecuted worldwide.
“The purpose of the conference is to put together a coalition of organizations and individuals working for religious freedom so we can continue the momentum of the past three years and put together a network of information, support and action,” said former Sen. Sam Brownback, the summit’s co-chair.
Brownback, along with Gayle Manchin, former chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom and wife of Sen. Joe Manchin, hopes this summit brings a bipartisan framework to the important work of advocating for persecuted believers worldwide.
