About the Event

Launching a global movement of young leaders to stand for religious freedom for everyone, everywhere, all the time

Join the national IRF Summit that will take place from July  13-15 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C. as well as  virtually. Advocates from across the United States and around the world  will gather here and virtually to work together to support International  Religious Freedom (IRF).

Young leaders can help create societal change and a global movement  to defend and promote international religious freedom. The Summit will  equip them with the knowledge, advocacy skills, and professional  connections to make a difference on the frontlines of human rights  advocacy. This premiere leadership program includes opportunities to:

  • Receive training on human rights advocacy firsthand from experienced  advocates, government officials, and survivors of religious  persecution.
  • Develop advocacy projects that young leaders can implement in their own hometowns, schools, and communities.
  • Connect with other passionate young leaders from around the world.

Young leaders from ages 16 – 30 are invited to apply to join us  virtually or for a limited number of in-person spots. Participants will  be assigned to one of the high school, college, or young professional  cohorts. Apply today for our virtual or in-person tracks to make a  difference for international religious freedom!

Young leaders will join in the Summit’s general track events  featuring high-level IRF government officials, faith leaders, and  survivors of religious persecution and participate in programing  tailored for them, including:

  • The Launching Young Leaders Network Side Event: Young Leaders will apply their IRF knowledge and advocacy training to  brainstorm and develop plans for projects, such as standing with  international prisoners of conscience, that they can implement in their  communities.
  • Congressional Advocacy Day: Young  leaders will be given the opportunity to meet with Members of Congress  and/or staff on Capitol Hill to advocate in support of IRF.
