In this episode, Penny is joined by CWA’s Vice President of International Affairs, Dr. Shea Garrison, to discuss global religious liberty. The first week of June, then newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared international religious freedom a “universal human right.” He followed up on that by hosting the State Department’s first-ever Ministerial for Advancing Religious Freedom. CWA was invited to hold a side event which Shea spearheaded in conjunction with The Heritage Foundation, “How to Protect International Religious Freedom form the Politicization of Human Rights.”
Penny has the pleasure of interviewing her longtime friend, Pam Pryor. Pam Pryor is the Senior Advisor, Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights, U.S. Department of State. Pam has so much insight to share about global religious liberty from the perspective of someone from the State Department.
Penny also discusses the discrimination some faith-based foster and adoption agencies are experiencing and what the Aderholt Amendment is doing to ensure these agencies are allowed to continue operating and serving America’s children.
