Antonio Olivié, cofounder of #StandTogether, Giulia Nembrini, and Brian Grim join the CIC to discuss the digital platform created to give voice to Christians who are discriminated or persecuted, especially in the Middle East.
This project is the result of the collaboration between institutions devoted to fostering a culture of dialogue and peace, by spreading the testimony of religious minorities, Christian and others, who live in dire circumstances.
#StandTogether does not wish to create a new reality or replace the existing initiatives devoted to this issue. Rather, their goal is to offer a common area for media and institutions to share their projects and to increase their potential audience exponentially.
The guiding idea behind this project is that the range of a message increases if people work together. That is why the following institutions are collaborating in this project: Communion and Liberation, Amici Rome Reports, Fundación Promoción Social de la Cultura, and ISCOM, who were the initiators of the project.
This event is related to the ‘Responding to the Global Persecution of Christians’ symposium hosted by the Under Caesar’s Sword project and its primary partners, the Religious Freedom Institute and the Center for Ethics and Culture at the University of Notre Dame.
