The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) invites you to join us in commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (IRFA).

Freedom of religion is both America’s first freedom and a universal human right. Yet many people around the world live in countries where this right is denied or restricted. Twenty-five years ago, IRFA was enacted to elevate religious freedom as a higher priority in U.S. foreign policy and strengthen the United States’ advocacy on behalf of individuals persecuted in foreign countries on account of their religion or belief.

Speakers will reflect on the impact of IRFA and the next steps for U.S. foreign policy. This event will also highlight individuals and communities persecuted for their religion or belief, as well as the many victims of religious freedom violations documented in the Frank R. Wolf Freedom of Religion or Belief Victims List.

More details on this event will be available soon.

This event is open to Members of Congress, congressional staff, the public, and the media. For any additional questions or interview requests, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
