CONGRESS AND IRF: CHAMPIONS AND CHALLENGES
Join us to review key IRF legislative highlights during the 116th Congress.
The International Religious Freedom Congressional Scorecard, a project of 21Wilberforce, is intended as a model of proactive engagement for legislators. It tracks sponsorship and voting records of members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives for bills, resolutions, and amendments that support international religious freedom.
NOTABLE IRF LEADERS
21Wilberforce President Randel Everett will offer recognition to those members of Congress who scored in the very top ranks during the 116th Congress.
A live panel including Q&A with distinguished IRF leaders Nury Turkel, Wai Wai Nu, and Hormoz Shariat will highlight the harassment, discrimination and persecution that has occurred and continues to take place in China, Myanmar and Iran.
IRF advocates Matias Perttula and Lou Sabatier will share key highlights from the Scorecard and how civil society and faith groups use this resource to advance freedom of religion or belief.
The IRF Congressional Scorecard has an incredibly important story to tell. As religious freedom abuses have proliferated around the world, America’s efforts to advocate for this bedrock human right have not kept pace. This vital tool tells us who in our Congress is leaning forward in defense of the First Freedom and who is leaning back. This is information we need to know so that all of us can better protect the conscience rights of people across the globe.
