We Defend

Our vision is to empower people of faith to collaboratively support persecuted communities of all faiths, challenge religious repression, and globally expand freedom of religion, belief, and conscience.

21Wilberforce draws its inspiration from the 19th century British parliamentarian William Wilberforce, who led an improbable movement that ended the single greatest violation of human rights — the slave trade.

Like our namesake, 21Wilberforce leverages the strength of collaborative partnerships, grassroots empowerment, and policy campaigns.

We Mobilize

21st century — more than 80% of people living today face some form of restriction, discrimination or ongoing persecution because of their beliefs. 21Wilberforce stands committed to advance religious freedom as a universal right through its innovative online Freedom Center.

The online Freedom Center provides tailored tools to mobilize and train groups and individuals to defend persecuted communities and religious prisoners. This digital platform promotes three objectives:
Learn (awareness and understanding)
Prepare (practical instruction)
Act (tools for engagement and action)
