ISIS (the Islamic State) is waging genocide against Christians.
More than a million Christians have been slaughtered and 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 Obama Administration to recognize this “genocide against Christians.”
Now we have an obligation to act under the Genocide Convention.
We’re launching a brand new multi-pronged legal advocacy campaign – mobilizing our global offices – urging the U.S., U.N., and world leaders to adopt our critical policy proposals: 1) stop the genocide and 2) protect Christians.
Christians are dying. Take action with us.
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.
