Don’t miss these timely discussions with a Christian leader known for his tremendous ability to work across the aisle and give a voice to those who can’t speak for themselves. Register Now.
First elected in 1980, Frank Wolf served Virginia in the House of Representatives for 24 years. He retired in 2015 to focus exclusively on human rights and religious freedom. In announcing his decision to leave Congress, Wolf said that as a follower of Jesus, he is called to work for justice and reconciliation and to be an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Wolf is the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which infused America’s first freedom – religious freedom – into U.S. foreign policy by creating the International Religious Freedom Office at the State Department headed by an Ambassador-at-Large. It also established the bipartisan, independent U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom as both a watchdog of repressive regimes and a truth-teller to the State Department. Wolf also is the author of the legislation to create a special envoy at the U.S. State Department to advocate for religious minorities in the Near East and South-Central Asia.
