The March for the Martyrs made history on September 5th, 2020 when hundreds of Christians across all denominations of Christianity marched to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians around the world. Despite Christians being the most persecuted religious group, this issue is widely ignored by the media and often overlooked within our communities of faith. For this reason, we are on a mission to bring the March for the Martyrs across the United States to bring Christian Persecution to the forefront of the fight for Human Rights.
We believe knowledge inspires action. As the awareness of the suffering of the persecuted church grows, more can be done to provide aid to those suffering. For the Martyrs has so far provided grocery relief to refugees in Jordan, transportation to orphans in Africa, and provided the funding of hundreds of Bibles into restricted nations.
Our work for the persecuted and our March for the Martyrs has been featured on EWTN, Rome Reports, Catholic News Agency, The Epoch Times and in the Daily Caller.
Gia Chacón is a humanitarian, motivational speaker, and the Pro-Life Director of Bienvenido US. She first began her humanitarian efforts in 2017 and has since traveled to Central America, East Africa, and throughout the Middle East.
During her time with the refugees, she had the opportunity to speak with them about the atrocities they faced and the horrible acts of violence they suffered for refusing to renounce Christ.
After hearing these stories, God laid it on her heart to bring awareness to the growing crisis of Christian Persecution and to make a positive impact in the lives of the suffering faithful. This led to the founding of For the Martyrs.
In addition to public speaking, pro-life advocacy, and religious freedom advocacy, Gia Chacón is a published writer, has been featured in news articles, and interviewed on television and radio shows. Daily, she impacts culture through the media through her social media account @genuinelygia.
