A Call for Global Religious Freedom Made by President Dallin H. Oaks

At a Catholic Conference in Rome, President Oaks Offers Four Ways to Strengthen Religious Freedom.

"I call for a global effort to defend and advance the religious freedom of all the children of God in every nation of the world," President Oaks said.

At Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 — just a couple of miles from the Vatican — President Dallin H. Oaks of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called for a global effort to protect religious freedom for all people.

This was the second time in as many years that a leader of the Church of Jesus Christ was invited to speak at the Notre Dame Religious Liberty Summit. Elder Quentin L. Cook participated last year at the conference in Indiana.
