Standing in Solidarity For What Matters: IGE at the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom

July 24, 2019

IGE stands as an active member and partner at the Ministerial because IGE believes that religious freedom matters for all people. IGE co-hosted two side-events alongside Christianity Today (CT) in order to describe more of why religious freedom matters in the domestic and global communities and how exactly IGE and others work to advance religious freedom.

One of the main pillars of IGE's approach is "Relational Diplomacy": We overcome obstacles of culture and religion by creating and nurturing mutually beneficial relationships, inviting all viewpoints to the table, and working together as partners for the common good.

IGE is currently active in China, Vietnam, Laos, Uzbekistan, and Myanmar. IGE is also home to the Center for Women, Faith & Leadership (CWFL). 

Freedom of faith matters for women, business, peace and security, governance, human rights, freedom of speech and press, healthcare, and youth and education. When you support IGE, you are supporting freedom of faith which matters for all spheres of life.

We encourage you to take the next step in your journey with IGE: Browse our website, sign up to receive our monthly update emails, join our prayer list, engage with IGE on social media, or consider donating to support our work.
