The U.S. House of Representatives, in 2011, overwhelmingly adopted H.Res.306, a bipartisan religious freedom measure that called for American leadership in securing Turkey's return of Christian religious properties. In 2014, the House Foreign Affairs Committee approved H.R. 4347, which formally required the State Department to report annually on Ankara's progress in restoring these holy sites to their rightful owners. Yet Turkey has not taken any meaningful steps to actually return Christian sites of worship.
Send letters to your Senators and Representative urging U.S. leadership in pressing the Turkish government to return improperly confiscated or otherwise stolen Christian properties in Turkey (dating back to the Armenian Genocide) and the areas of Cyprus occupied by the Turkish military, to honor its international religious freedom obligations, and to fully respect freedom of faith.
