Pakistan is one of the most pernicious persecutors of Christians ever.
Pakistani Christians are tortured, raped, and burned alive. Some – like Christian mother of five Asia Bibi – are falsely accused of blasphemy and sentenced to execution by hanging because of their faith.
Others face mob violence and governmental abuse and injustice.
Despite the increasing extremism, the Pakistani government persistently fails to protect Christians from violence or bring its perpetrators to justice. Even worse the government of Pakistan itself is one of the world’s worst jihadist persecutors of Christians.
This deadly barbarism – this monumental injustice – must end.
We’ve mobilized our offices on the ground in Pakistan, at the U.N., and on Capitol Hill to aggressively fight back. We are directly defending numerous Christians in Pakistani courts.
Save the lives of persecuted Christians before it’s too late. Take action with us.
Christian families in India are being targeted, beaten, and thrown out of their homes simply because of their Christian faith.

Right after the ruling, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who...
As Turkey has already begun to re-appropriate a historic Christian church into a mosque, multiple world and religious leaders – including Islamic groups – are raising their voices, decrying the conversion of the holy site. We recently told you how Turkey’s President Recep Erdoğan had announced that...
ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
