Soteria International together with a larger network of NGOs stand behind Faith & Freedom Summit II, that takes place next tuesday 2nd of April in the European Parliament.
We mean that freedom of conscience and religion must be secured at all levels of the EU, where it does not always enjoy the respect and attention it does deserve as a fundamental right.
The summit invites those who actively want to take a stand for everyone's right to live in line with their heart, faith and conscience. It is also a call for action: practicing what we preach in Europe!
Faith & Freedom Summit II has written a pledge, which is supported by FNs special rappourteur on freedom of religion and belief Ahmed Shaheed, that anyone has the oppertunity to sign as a mark of one's support for the complaince of our fundamental rights.
"I pledge that I will uphold and defend the freedom of conscience and religion of all individuals by rejecting and speaking out against bigotry, discrimination, harassment and violence; and so build a more equitable society for all."
