Around the world, religious minorities are persecuted and stripped of human rights, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote yesterday. “We need to hear the stories of those persecuted, tortured, falsely imprisoned, and killed for their faith. We can honor their sacrifices by preventing these atrocities from happening again,” he writes.

President Trump is taking action. This week, the State Department is bringing together religious leaders, survivors of persecution, and delegations from foreign governments for the first-ever Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. Vice President Mike Pence and other senior Administration officials will be in attendance.

The goal is simple: to promote the God-given human right to believe what you choose.

The persecution of Christians, Jews, and Sunni Muslims must end.
