Religious Freedom

We are calling for the appointment of an Ambassador for International Freedom of Religion or Belief.

Almost 75% of the world’s population live in countries with high levels of government restrictions on freedom of religion or belief. In many of these countries people are killed or tortured because of their faith.   

Freedom of religion is a human right, as outlined in Article 18 of the UNCHR. That’s the freedom to choose religion, change religion or hold no religion.

There are a number of great organisations working to promote religious freedom across the world. 

Follow these charities to stay informed about the situation of persecuted religious minorities and for resources to help you get involved in making a stand.
