Congressional International Religious Freedom Caucus
Founded in 2006, the Congressional International Religious Freedom Caucus seeks to keep members of Congress informed about religious freedom issues and in contact with NGOs working in the field. The Working Group's central initiative is a bipartisan monthly meeting which facilitates networking between non-profit advocacy groups and policymakers and lectures on domestic and international religious freedom issues. In addition, the caucus sponsors Religious Freedom Day on Capitol Hill. Congressmen Trent Franks and Emanuel Cleaver II are the founders (with then-Senator Rick Santorum) and current co-chairs of the caucus.
