On November 15, we are hosting a small gathering to celebrate six years of groundbreaking research by the Religious Freedom Project, a project of the Georgetown University Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the launch of the newly established Religious Freedom Institute, a new non-profit working to secure religious freedom for everyone, everywhere.
The evening will begin at 6:15pm, and will feature remarks by Senator Ben Sasse, a political leader of growing national prominence, and one of the Senate's staunchest advocates for religious freedom (Click here to see an important speech on religious freedom that Senator Sasse recently gave on the Senate floor). We hope you can join us for an evening of good food and celebration.

The Religious Freedom Institute (RFI) is committed to achieving broad acceptance of religious liberty as a fundamental human right, the cornerstone of a successful society, and a source of national and international security. The RFI is designed to take the best ideas about religious freedom and put them "on-the-ground" to make a tangible impact, working directly with faith communities, civil society organizations, and governments.
The Religious Freedom Project (RFP) at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs is the nation's only university-based program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom, a basic human right restricted in many parts of the world. Under the leadership of Director Thomas Farr and Associate Director Timothy Shah, the RFP engages a team of international scholars to examine and debate the meaning and value of religious liberty; its importance for democracy; and its role in social and economic development, international diplomacy, and the struggle against violent religious extremism.
