Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom: Economic Issues

22 Jul, 2018

July 25, Washington, DC

At the first-ever Ministerial to advance religious freedom hosted by US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, Brian Grim, President of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, will make the business case for religious freedom at the July 25th gathering of delegates from some 80 nations.

Grim will be joined by Aleem Walji, CEO, Aga Khan Foundation USA. They will discuss how greater religious freedom supports open markets and economic growth and how religious freedom allows faith communities to support sustainable development and economic prosperity.

Grim will also lay out how religious freedom contributes to a strong economy, which in turn contributes to a nation’s security at a side event at the Religious Freedom Center at the Freedom Forum Institute/Newseum at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, July 27. This session is free and open to the public.
