The Coalition establishes a broad-based foundation, one that unites American Christians and people of goodwill, including concerned Jews and others. Since its launch, the Coalition has conducted targeted outreach to U.S. Evangelicals, Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Baptists, non-denominational Christians and Jews. This alliance of human rights, media and faith leaders provides leadership for Save the Persecuted Christians via our Advisory Board that meets weekly to strategize and discuss current events. Working together, we mobilize the grassroots to engage public officials and spread news of persecution. All of our Coalition partners benefit from the increased awareness of anti-Christian persecution and the initiatives of Save the Persecuted Christians.
Save the Persecuted Christians is igniting a grassroots movement — an irresistible force of the people in the pews — to advocate for the world’s Christians, educate Americans about their plight and demand the imposition of real costs on those who persecute them. Grassroots organizations play an important social and political role. They serve as a burr-under- the-saddle of political elites. The combined voice of the grassroots empowers individuals to engage with government and private sector stakeholders. For their part, government leaders are often moved to action when “rank-and-file” ordinary people mobilize themselves into a formidable force.
“Why is the world silent while Christians are being slaughtered? Good people must join together and stop this…It’s not as if we are powerless. I write this as a citizen of the strongest military power on earth. I write this as a Jewish leader who cares about my Christian brothers and sisters. The Jewish people understand all to well what can happen when the world is silent. This campaign of death must be stopped.”
— Ronald S. Lauder, President, World Jewish Congress
