Religious Freedom: A Call to Stand Together
21Wilberforce is a Christian human rights organization dedicated to defending the universal rights of religion, belief, and conscience for all people. Our vision is to empower people to collaboratively support persecuted communities, challenge repression, and expand freedom of religion and belief globally.
We draw inspiration from the 19th century British parliamentarian William Wilberforce, who led an improbable movement that ended the single greatest violation of human rights — the slave trade. Like our namesake, 21Wilberforce leverages the strength of collaborative partnerships, grassroots empowerment, and policy campaigns.
