The Religious Freedom Institute announces the launch of its Islam and Religious Freedom Action Team

At an event, the Religious Freedom Institute (RFI) announced the launch of its Islam and Religious Freedom Action Team. Each of the Religious Freedom Institute’s five action teams advances religious freedom in a particular issue area or region of the world. The Islam and Religious Freedom Action team is directed by Jennifer S. Bryson. It focuses on exploring and supporting religious freedom from within the traditions of Islam.

Jennifer Bryson has been studying religious freedom from within the traditions of Islam and working with Muslims who support religious freedom since 2009. She has a Ph.D. in Arabic and Islamic studies from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale University, an M.A. in History from Yale, and a B.A. in Political Science from Stanford. She is currently studying religious freedom in international human rights at the Newseum Institute’s Religious Freedom Center in Washington, D.C.

The Islam and Religious Freedom Action team includes Research and Program Associate Ismail Royer, Program Associate Kareem McDonald, and Atlas Corps Fellow Mehdi Mejri. IslamRFI.org features research and publications by Islamic scholars and other Muslim experts on religious freedom. Many of these are provided in Arabic and multiple other languages.

The Religious Freedom Institute (RFI) works to secure religious freedom for everyone, everywhere. The The RFI is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, D.C.
