Speak Freedom Center
The Speak Freedom Center provides tailored tools to mobilize and train individuals, groups, and networks to defend persecuted communities and religious prisoners. These tools help aid embattled believers and advance religious freedom worldwide. They can be tapped to create advocacy campaigns for prisoner release or crowd-funding for legal assistance, to deploy social media campaigns, to benefit from“Know Your Rights” and/or leadership training materials, and more.

- Training videos and guides
- Crowd-funding capabilities
- “Know Your Rights” training
- Leadership training
- Social media tools
- A curated library of fact sheets and reports
