In the strongest showing to date of progress being made to defend Christians facing genocide, the U.N. has responded to our recent letter, agreeing with our assessment regarding the growing body of evidence that the Islamic State (ISIS) is in fact committing genocide against religious minorities. Nearly two months ago – as part of our ongoing effort to end the ISIS genocide against Christians – we sent a letter to Adama Dieng, the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on the Prevention of... read more

As Christians suffer persecution and death, we can – and MUST – be their voice. To combat these atrocities, we are continuing to expand our largest legal advocacy campaign for Christians facing genocide globally. In July, we sent crucial legal letters to 12 world leaders – most of whom have experienced Islamic State (ISIS) attacks within their borders – imploring them to use their influence at the United Nations to “recognise and declare that the ongoing atrocities committed by the Islamic... read more

Christian charity has been the greatest financial force for good the world has ever known, yet churches are being penalized and discriminated against in providing vital aid to those in the most need after some of the worst natural disasters we’ve ever witnessed in America. When natural disasters strike, churches and other houses of worship often serve as a place of refuge.

The GOP has put forward their final attempt to repeal ObamaCare this year: The Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson bill, also known as Graham-Cassidy . Vice President Mike Pence has aptly described this as “ our last best chance to stop and turn [ObamaCare] around .” Time is of the essence because the reconciliation process that allows the Senate leadership to pass this reform with a simple majority vote expires on September 30, 2017. After this, there is no chance that the unified Left will allow... read more

This week, President Trump delivered a powerful speech at the United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly. To aid in the fight against ISIS and to help end the genocide against Christians, President Trump called for the creation of in-region safe zones, something we’ve long advocated. In his maiden speech before the U.N., President Trump said: We seek an approach to refugee resettlement that is designed to help these horribly treated people and which enables their eventual return to their home... read more

Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) states, “Every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law.” However, as we recently reported , the U.N. Human Rights Committee is attempting to revise its General Comment on Article 6 to now include support for abortions and euthanasia. The current draft forbids States from introducing “burdensome requirements on women seeking to undergo abortions,” and provides that States “must... read more

As part of our ongoing efforts to end the ISIS genocide against Christians, we delivered an oral intervention before the United Nations Human Rights Council through our affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), again urging the U.N. to act. In our intervention we told the story of 52 civilians who were killed in an ISIS attack, warned of the spread of ISIS and its affiliates, and asked the international community to come together to protect Christians and put an end to the... read more

This week President Trump took his robust agenda for reform to the United Nations (U.N.). President Trump said : “ … I am confident that if we work together and champion truly bold reforms, the United Nations will emerge as a stronger, more effective, more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world.” As we all know, the U.N. is in shambles as its pungent incompetence spreads like a contagion around the globe. It is bloated, corrupted, and filled with anti-Israel animus. In... read more
