On Feb. 26 during the convention, Save the Persecuted Christians President and CEO Frank J. Gaffney will make opening remarks at the public policy forum featuring U.S. Attorney General William Barr. The forum is set for 4 to 4:45 p.m. CST. Additionally, Save the Persecuted Christians’ SaveUs Movement video will play during the forum, as well as throughout the conference on televisions in the Gaylord Opryland hotel on the conference channel.
Save the Persecuted Christians representatives will be set up in the Fresh Brew Cafe area of the Exhibit Hall, opening Feb. 26, to display its powerful traveling exhibit, “Warfare on Women,” which reveals the specific terror-tactic used to demean and degrade female believers to instill fear into the heart of Christian communities. “Warfare on Women” highlights multiple stories of Christian women, from Nigeria, Egypt, Pakistan and elsewhere, who are harmed by religious violence.
The exhibit’s “Kidnapped” banner, which focuses on Nigeria and the abduction of Christian teen Leah Sharibu, in Boko Haram captivity for just over two years, states: “Nigerian girls are being terrorized and enslaved by three of the world’s most dangerous extremists, including Boko Haram, Islamic State in West Africa Province and Muslim Fulani herdsmen. Thousands of people are reportedly held captive in northern Nigeria and the Middle Belt, where kidnapping and banditry fund the terrorists’ genocidal agendas.”
Gaffney and STPC Executive Director Dede Laugesen will be on hand to answer questions and share information about the two-year-old organization—a bipartisan, multi-faith coalition of nearly 200 civil society, faith and community leaders who advocate for more than 300 million persecuted Christians globally. In just two years, STPC has made incredible impact for persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.
The mission of Save the Persecuted Christians is to save lives and save souls by disseminating actionable information about the magnitude of the persecution taking place globally and by mobilizing concerned Americans for the purpose of disincentivizing further attacks on those who follow Jesus.
With so much of the world’s Christian population being imprisoned and/or harassed for their beliefs, the need has never been greater for the sort of grassroots campaign STPC’s SaveUs Movement is working to foster. Its efforts are modeled after a miraculously successful one that helped free another population suffering from heavy persecution—Soviet Jews—by penalizing those in the Kremlin responsible for such repression. Through this movement, Save the Persecuted Christians endeavors to provide American policymakers with the popular support they need to effect real change worldwide and alleviate systemically the suffering being experienced by so many of those following Christ.
