Episode 1: Taking on giants since 1979

Episode 2: Where are we headed?

Scot Bower is a champion of all things CSW – from fundraising by running ultramarathons to growing our international network. He brings excellent experience and insight of what it means to be a true ally to those suffering injustice because of their religion or belief.

Episode 3: Truly global - CSW in the US 

Anna-Lee Stangl has been with us since she graduated from university…now spanning over 20 years! She leads our Latin American team from her base in Washington DC, after ten years working in our Brussels base spearheading our work at the EU. 

Episode 4: What does it mean to be an advocate?

Dr Khataza Gondwe is an expert on religious freedom and injustice and is one of the leading freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) advocates in the world. She shares on what is happening in Nigeria - and why what happens in Nigeria is such a catalyst for the rest of the continent of Africa.

Episode 5: A rebel for justice

Benedict Rogers has been involved with CSW since his student days and now works as our Senior Analyst for East Asia. An international author and speaker; Ben's work has even seen him deported from Myanmar/Burma as he tirelessly pursues justice!
