Rep. Jeff Fortenberry to Speak at Family Research Council on the Genocide Designation Concerning ISIS Atrocities

CONTACT: J.P. Duffy or Alice Chao, (866) FRC-NEWS or (866)-372-6397

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday April 28th, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebr.), co-chair of the Caucus on Religious Minorities in the Middle East, will give an address at the Family Research Council on the policy implications of the State Department and Congress’ labeling of ISIS’ atrocities against Christians and other minorities as genocide.

Before Secretary of State John Kerry designated ISIS' ongoing brutality against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in the Middle East as genocide, Fortenberry spearheaded a resolution calling for that designation; it passed the House 393-0. The rare bipartisan support for this move reflects the universal desire in Congress to see the Obama administration act to end ISIS' atrocities.  

WHO: Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebr.)

WHAT: Lecture on “The Genocide Resolution: Responding to ISIS and Threats to International Religious Liberty”

WHEN: TOMORROW, April 28, 2016 at noon EST

WHERE: In Person: 801 G Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20001
