Tactics story
Religious leaders join together to influence Parliament, Kyrgyzstan

Tactic: Advocacy

When changes to the law on religion were proposed in 2012, leaders from the six largest religious communities in Kyrgyzstan decided to react. Having previously received training on Freedom of Religion or Belief, the leaders knew the proposals violated several aspects of the right and risked creating tensions between religious groups. The six religious communities issued a joint letter to the State Commission on Religious Affairs and the Parliament, asking them to reject the proposed amendments. Parliamentarians considered the joint letter and voted against the amendments.
