Pastor Andrew's Family Advocate for Release

ByACLJ.org1493410131329

In the days following the Trump Administration's acknowledgment of their awareness of American Pastor Andrew Brunson's plight, members of the ACLJ's senior team held numerous meetings on Capitol Hill advocating for Pastor Andrew's freedom.

Pastor Andrew Brunson – a U.S. citizen from North Carolina – has been imprisoned in an overcrowded prison cell in Turkey for more than six months. As the instability of the nation increases, justice and freedom for our fellow American becomes more pressing.

Every U.S. leader we met with this week was clear about one thing – they are continually committed to making Pastor Andrew's release a top priority, as well as continually pressuring Turkey – our NATO ally – until he is released. They relayed their condolences regarding his unjust imprisonment, as Pastor Andrew has now been held for nearly seven months without formal charges or any evidence presented against him whatsoever.

This week, we met with Senators James Lankford (OK), Lindsey Graham (SC), Richard Burr (NC), Thom Tillis (NC), and Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Corker (TN), in addition to several key and high-ranking State Department officials. In these meetings, Pastor Andrew's mother, sister, and brother-in-law were not only able to personally thank everyone for their efforts for Pastor Andrew, but his mom and sister were able to share personal stories about their son and brother.

More than 271,000 of you have joined our global advocacy campaign for Pastor Andrew, joining us as we fight on Capitol Hill and at the United Nations.

Just as his family and our team shared about Pastor Andrew’s plight with our nation’s leaders, we need you to be heard for him with your family, friends, and communities.
