This Wednesday, 24th November 2021, Aid to the Church in Need will mark Red Wednesday.

This year, Aid to the Church in Need, which is known for standing up for religious freedom, will be focusing turning the tide on the kidnap, forced marriage and conversion, rape and sexual enslavement of Christian women and girls.

There are a number of ways that it is possible to get involved and make a difference:

  • Sign ACN's petition, which will be handed to Fiona Bruce, the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief.  The petition will call upon the UK Government and UN to take effective steps to address the double jeopardy faced by women and girls from religious minorities.
  • HEAR HER CRIES Report:  Request a copy of ACN's Report about the kidnapping, forced conversion and sexual victimisation of Christian women and girls.  The Report investigates the global problem of women being targeted for sexual violence because of their religious beliefs and then forced to convert, often under pain of death.
  • Join an Event: whether joining ACN's flagship event at Westminster Cathedral or their livestream from the Scottish Parliament on 24th November, or perhaps the online talk on 26th November, please take the time to stand in solidarity. alongside ACN, with women and girls who are victimised due to their religious belief.

In addition to these ways to get involved, ACN has created a wealth of resources for young people and for those looking to fundraise.
