Co-hosted by the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative
Fractured and forgotten, communities of faith in northern and central Nigeria face not only systematic discrimination, but also significant security threats from Boko Haram violence and the accelerating aggression of Fulani militants in the Middle Belt. With five million people displaced indefinitely, Nigeria faces one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
This timely program will feature the release of a new, in-depth report detailing the primary challenges to religious freedom in Nigeria, an interview with a mother whose daughter was kidnapped from the Chibok Government Secondary School, and strategic policy approaches that could help the U.S. meaningfully stand with Nigeria at this critical time.
