This week we are turning our attention to the plight of Christians in Jakarta and other points in the Mid-East by welcoming back 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 and has served as adjunct professor teaching Immigration Law at Regent University in 1996 and teaching International Religious Freedom Law in 2011.
The 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.
Join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina as they discuss these religious freedom issues with Ann on Faith On Trial Tuesday at 9 a.m. (Central) on Iowa Catholic Radio, 1150 AM; 88.5& 94.5 FM and streaming on IowaCatholicRadio.com, where podcasts of earlier programs can be found.
