Former Congressman Frank WolfFirst 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.

Wolf has been honored by a number of organizations for his work on human rights and religious persecution. Among them: The Presidential Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and the Prison Fellowship Ministries William Wilberforce Award. He also received the 2014 Democracy Service Medal from the National Endowment for Democracy and the Leadership Award from Freedom House. Wolf was named WORLD Magazine’s Daniel of the Year award for 2014.
