Segment 3 – Hostility Against Churches Is on the Rise in the United States
“Family Research Council (FRC) released the newest edition of its Hostility Against Churches report, updated to include hostility incidents from calendar year 2023. The report’s findings suggest that the rise in hostility against U.S. churches that were identified in FRC’s inaugural December 2022 report has neither slowed nor plateaued; rather, it has accelerated rapidly. FRC identified 436 hostility incidents in 2023–more than double the number identified in 2022 and more than eight times the number identified in 2018, the first year for which FRC collected data.”  Read more here.  (Originally aired March 5, 2024)

Through research and analysis, she helps craft effective policy solutions and coordinates FRC’s advocacy on international religious freedom.
