March for the Martyrs



For the Martyrs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness about Christian Persecution, advocate for Religious Freedom, and provide aid to suffering Christians across the globe.


The number of people persecuted because of their faith in Christ has risen over 20% in just two years. There are now over 260 million Christians around the world that face high levels of persecution*. Despite the growing crisis, Christian Persecution is widely ignored by the media and often overlooked within Western faith communities. For this reason, we invite you to March for the Martyrs on Saturday, September 5th to stand in solidarity with the persecuted faithful, march in remembrance of those who have been martyred for the faith, and join your heart to the persecuted members of the Body of Christ around the world.

Our's is a message of hope: persecuted believers are not forgotten, Christian Persecution will not be ignored, and Jesus Christ still has the victory.

"Persecuted, but not forsaken."
2 Corinthians 4:9
