Former U.S. Senator – and now former Governor of Kansas – Sam Brownback was recently sworn in as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
This is one of the most important positions in the Trump administration for several reasons:
- Religious freedom is the foundation of all other freedoms
- There is more religious persecution in the world today than ever before
- International religious freedom is one of the few truly non-partisan issues in Washington
- Religious freedom is fundamental to our identity as Americans … and is essential to our national security
During his swearing in ceremony, Brownback stated:
“If you want more security and less terrorism in your country, have more religious freedom. It’s a byproduct, a fruit of more security and peace. It’s in all the data and now we need to spread it to all the world.”
As a former Senator, Brownback understands the intricacies of Capitol Hill … introducing numerous pieces of key human rights legislation.
He is empowered to help those of all faiths world-wide who are being persecuted because of their religion.
He will also lead the efforts of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) – an independent, bipartisan federal government commission.
