One year after the US exit
TODAY: STPC webinar to analyze the tragic situation for Christians in Afghanistan, as well as how America can help the persecuted
WASHINGTON— Save the Persecuted Christians (STPC) will host a panel of experts today to discuss the deteriorating situation for Christians in Afghanistan and those who fled over the past year following the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from that country.
As the Taliban continues to tighten the noose on religious minorities, what are Christians in Afghanistan experiencing? What’s still being done to help them, and what more could the USA do for those at most risk of religious persecution?
Join STPC’s webinar titled “Afghan Christians: One Year After the U.S. Exit” today at 4:30pm ET. Register here.

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, such as Christians in Afghanistan, 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.
