Regional Partnership Events

Part of the National Review Institute’s mission is to “draw from and support other conservative institutions.” In that spirit, in December 2013, NRI began this initiative to co-sponsor events with state-based think tanks, civic groups, and other educational organizations across the United States. NRI also works with student groups to co-sponsor events on college campuses, learn more about these events here.

A brutal persecution is happening, as Christians are being driven out of what was the very cradle of Christianity in Iraq and Syria. Pope Francis has said that there are more Christian martyrs today than in the early days of Christianity. What are we doing about it? What can we do about it? Co-hosted by the Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society and NRI’s Center for Religion, Culture, and Civil Society, our expert panel – covering history and public policy, frontline charity and activism, and media – discussed the plight of Christians in Iraq and Syria and how they can be helped and how their witness can strengthen our resolve in defense of religious freedom at home and abroad. Info and VIDEO
