Christians in Nigeria live in a constant state of terror, fearing abduction, torture, and murder by radical Islamic jihadists.
Boko Haram, the jihadist army and Nigerian arm of ISIS, has slaughtered 2,000 innocent Christians. It burns down Christian churches. One survivor stated, “I saw bodies in the street. Children and women, some were crying for help.” It even poses as preachers to slaughter Christian congregants.
Other jihadist groups, like the Fulani Herdsmen, are increasing this barbaric persecution of Christians in Nigeria, slaughtering thousands.
We have an obligation to act. We’re drastically expanding our Persecution Project. We’re launching a multi-pronged legal advocacy campaign, urging the U.N., U.S., and world leaders to take urgent action.
We’ve mobilized our global offices, continuing to expand our most extensive campaign for the persecuted Church ever undertaken, preparing numerous legal memoranda, advocacy letters, and policy proposals.
Together we can protect Christians in Nigeria from the growing scourge of jihadist persecution. Add your name:
We have told you about China’s continuous persecution of Christians and attacks on religious liberty. These attacks span from arbitrarily arresting pastors to surveilling churches and even implementing laws and regulations that essentially regulate what religious groups can and cannot say. Through...

If you’re a Christian, you must be guilty. That seems to be the prevailing belief throughout Pakistan. As a result, Christians in the predominantly Muslim country face barbaric injustice and abuse – even death – under its archaic blasphemy laws, even when there isn’t a scrap of evidence against...
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.
