CSW-USA is part of an international network of affiliates including CSW UK, CSW-Nigeria, impulso18 and CSW South East Asia. Together, we stand with those facing injustice because of their religion or belief, and advocate to defend, protect and restore religious freedom worldwide. 

CSW-USA raises public awareness of religious freedom concerns, reaches out to inform and equip churches and individuals to take action, and supports CSW's wider research and advocacy work domestically and abroad. 
As the world tackles the pandemic and worsening inequalities and rights violations, CSW’s advocacy for the right to religious freedom is needed more than ever. 

"My vision for CSW-USA is for it to become a movement of people in the US who are passionate about justice, want to champion freedom of religion or belief and will stand with those for whom it is not yet a reality."

Kori Porter, CEO CSW-USA

Our mission

As a Christian organization standing up for religious freedom, our mission is to:

  • Stand with those facing injustice because of their religious beliefs.
  • Communicate a Christian rationale of religious freedom for all. 
  • Raise public consciousness of religious persecution, building a movement committed to prayer and action.
  • Encourage the U.S. government to pursue aggressively and effectively its policy of promoting religious freedom worldwide.

We have Christian values at our heart

As an organization we are proud of our Christian heritage, identity and values. They are the foundations in all we do. 

We believe in the power of prayer to transform situations, and we encourage our supporters to join us in praying for the cases and issues on which we work.

"We're committed to deepening domestic understanding of this fundamental right, building on CSW’s decades of experience in research and advocacy to promote and uphold it both domestically and abroad.  

My passion lies in tackling injustice and seeking, by God’s wisdom and grace, to clear the obstacles for people to live free from religious persecution."

Kori Porter, CEO CSW-USA
