"ISIS’s criminal acts against Christians and other religious minorities in Syria and Iraq was designated as a Genocide by the U.S. Congress and administration in 2016. The rise of ISIS and the volume and scale of its atrocities demonstrate that when violence and wars break out, they are rarely contained. Their detrimental consequences spill over into neighboring countries and reverberate for decades to come. Worse, this kind of violence only fuels additional waves of atrocities, human rights and religious freedom violations around the world.IDC believes that preventing such violence and ongoing persecution against the most vulnerable communities is a matter of national security to the United States and should be treated as a priority.
The Elie Wiesel Act will make it United States Policy that it is in our best interest to prevent violent atrocities or acts of genocide in the future by responding quickly to early warning signs.
The Elie Wiesel Act has passed the House and is now stuck in the Senate. Send your Senator a strong signal that you support the Elie Wiesel Act and stopping genocides before they happen."
