ISIS (the Islamic State) has been waging genocide against Christians.
It has barbarically slaughtered thousands. More than a million Christians have been driven from their homes in the wake of the most inhuman atrocities imaginable.
It’s sickening: Christians abducted, beheaded, burned alive, and crucified.
We successfully pressured the prior Administration to recognize this “genocide against Christians.”
Now we have an obligation to act under the Genocide convention.
We’ve launched a multi-pronged legal advocacy campaign, urging the U.S., U.N., and world leaders to adopt our critical policy proposals: 1) stop the genocide and 2) protect Christians.
We’re mobilizing our global offices in the most expansive campaign for the persecuted Church we’ve ever undertaken, preparing numerous legal memoranda, advocacy letters, and policy proposals to Congress, President Trump, the U.N., and genocide agencies.
Christians have been slaughtered at the hands of genocidal jihadists. Together we can stop the genocide. Add your name today:
As we aggressively engage globally to defend dying Christians from genocide, every donation (even $5) makes a difference & will be MATCHED.

We’ve been telling you that the case of imprisoned American Pastor Andrew Brunson has reached the highest levels of the U.S. government. Last night, President Trump took to Twitter directly calling on Turkey and asking that “Pastor Andrew” “be allowed to come home,” stating that he is “being...
