This autumn we are asking you, once again, to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and all who suffer for their peacefully held beliefs. We will be holding a week of events from 19 – 26 November with #RedWednesday as the highlight on Wednesday 22 November.
Red is the Christian colour of martyrdom. Christians are the most persecuted faith group in today’s world and #RedWednesday will honour all Christians who suffer and die for their faithfulness to Christ’s message of peace and love.
#RedWednesday will shine a light on Christian persecution but also highlight the injustices perpetrated against other faith groups.
Our campaign calls for respect and tolerance for people of faith and between different faith traditions.

How your support is making a difference
The rights of people of faith are largely ignored in a society whose secular focus knows little about religion and cares even less. You, your parish, school, group or community can change that. Your voice on behalf of the voiceless will be heard – people power!
