Ministry Description
Advocates International and its regional networks are guided in their mission by Christ's Good Samaritan parable. Working relationally, professionally, and spiritually, they seek to enable those committed to religious liberty, human rights, reconciliation, and professional ethics. These networks employ the "Samaritan Strategy" by identifying and connecting "innkeepers" carrying out these objectives. Jesus taught, "Do unto others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." This principle serves as the cornerstone for a network linking 30,000 law professionals in more than 100 nations.

Each year Advocates Africa sends a small delegation of Christian attorneys to the African Commission on Human and People's Rights held in The Gambia, where they work to persuade voting members to support traditional family values--namely marriage between one man and one woman and pro-life (no abortion). Please help Advocates International to support our colleagues in Africa who may be the last line of defense against efforts to impose progressive changes from the top down.
