The purpose of the Religious Liberty Partnership (RLP) is to encourage and nurture partnering and collaboration among Christian organizations focused on religious liberty. With members from over 20 countries, the RLP seeks to work more intentionally together to increase advocacy, assistance, and awareness about the people facing religious restrictions globally. Although the members of the RLP are Christian-based organisations, the RLP supports and advocates religious freedom for all. In the past several years, the RLP has collaboratively addressed religious liberty issues and challenges in many countries including Afghanistan, China, India, the Middle East, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. Annually, the RLP conducts its global consultation bringing together leaders from around the world who work to protect religious freedom. In 2017, for the first time the meeting will be in Brazil and ANAJURE (National Association of Christian Lawyers in Brazil) was chosen to host the Consultation. The event is one of the most important in the world with regard to Freedom of Religion.
