Please join the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) for a discussion on USCIRF’s current work and key policy recommendations to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.
We invite you to hear from USCIRF Commissioners and staff to better understand how USCIRF advises and works with Congress and the Administration and learn more about several USCIRF policy recommendations that have been implemented in recent years, including the Department of State’s designation of countries of particular concern, the determination that atrocities committed against the Uyghurs and the Rohingya constitute genocide, and the sanctioning of multiple individuals for perpetrating religious freedom abuses.

In 1998, Congress passed the International Religious Freedom Act, or IRFA, which created USCIRF, an independent legislative branch agency, and prioritized the advancement of international religious freedom within U.S. foreign policy.


  • Nury Turkel, Chair, USCIRF
  • Sharon Kleinbaum, Commissioner, USCIRF
  • Stephen Schneck, Commissioner, USCIRF
