The online 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.
Our online platform promotes three objectives: LEARN (awareness and understanding), PREPARE (practical instruction) and ACT (tools for engagement and action).
This web-based platform includes:
- Training videos and guides
- Crowd-funding capabilities
- “Know Your Rights” training
- Leadership training
- Social media tools
- A curated library of fact sheets and reports
Each year 21Wilberforce hosts a one-week training and networking event in Washington, D.C. for young leaders interested in promoting and protecting international religious freedom. The conference is designed to educate and transform the participants into becoming effective advocates.Workshop modules and events include:
- Training sessions on global religious freedom
- Case studies on persecution
- First-person testimonies
- Advocacy training
- Meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill
- Tour of the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, etc.
