Dear Donna,

I have written to you several times about the ongoing violence against Christians in Orissa, India.  During these uncertain economic times, it can be hard to focus on issues on the other side of the world.  Yet, this is a good opportunity to empathize with and act on behalf of Christians in Orissa who face great physical uncertainties.

Recently Congressman Akin introduced a Congressional resolution calling on the Indian government to stop the violence against Christians and to protect religious freedom for Indians of all faiths.

We need your help to get more Congressional signatures on this resolution.  To be more effective, the resolution needs bi-partisan support. We are partnering with other like-minded organizations to gather more Congressional signatures.

Please take a minute to call your Representative’s office and ask him/her to co-sponsor House Concurrent Resolution 434 when Congress reconvenes.  This resolution calls on the Indian government to stop violence against Christians in Orissa.  You can find your Representative’s phone number here, and a sample phone script here

Advocating with you,

Petition to President Obama:  This month Open Doors USA launched a petition to President Obama, asking that he appoint a qualified Ambassador for International Religious Freedom. It’s been over a year since the president was inaugurated, yet he still has not appointed an Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom.  In leaving this important position unfilled, he has demonstrated that religious freedom is not a high priority on his agenda. Please act today and sign our petition asking President Obama to appoint a qualified Ambassador for International Religious Freedom immediately!

Open Doors’ Advocacy Campaign for Religious Freedom Special Envoy: We continue to ask our supporters to contact their Senators and request that they cosponsor S.1245 in order to help move it out of committee and to a vote. This bill, sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt (MO), asks the President to appoint a Special Envoy for Religious Freedom in the Near East and South Central Asia. Countries covered in this bill include some of the most oppressive places for Christians and other religious minorities. We appreciate the 2,500 Open Doors supporters who have already contacted their senators about this bill. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to Contact Your Senators Today    [ send green star]  [ accepted]
