The plight of Christians in the Mid-East -- Next on FOT

This week we are turning our attention to the plight of Christians in Nigeria, Africa, and other points in the Mid-East with Ann Buwalda, executive director of Jubilee Campaign USA, a non-profit organization which promotes the human rights and religious liberty of ethnic and religious minorities such as those in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, China, North Korea and others.

Ann is an experienced immigration attorney with U.S. business visas, religious worker visas, family-based petitions, and asylum and refugee cases.  She has served as adjunct professor teaching Immigration Law at Regent University in 1996 and teaching International Religious Freedom Law in 2011.  From 2002-2009 she annually taught Refugee and Human Rights Law as an adjunct professor at Handong International Law School in Korea. She has also given numerous immigration law presentations for professional associations, and her immigration law related published articles include: Immigration Law and the Church: How to Welcome the Stranger, Legally, Church Law & Tax Report, Nov/Dec 2010, (feature article published by Christianity Today International) and "Strangers Among Us: How Immigration Law Affects the Church," Enlightenment, Spring 2010 (published in "Church & Law: Navigating the Legal Maze" special issue).
Jubilee Campaign works to promote and protect vulnerable women and children from bodily harm and sexual exploitation, paying particular attention to the scourge of human trafficking or modern slavery. Jubilee Campaign holds consultative status at the United Nations from the Economic and Social Council.
