For the Martyrs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness about the crisis of Christian Persecution, advocate for Religious Freedom, and provide aid to victims of persecution around the world.
Our work for the persecuted and our March for the Martyrs has been featured in Fox News, CBN News, The Daily Caller, The Epoch Times, The Christian Post, EWTN, Catholic News Agency, and more.
MARCH FOR THE MARTYRS
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, support to the internally displaced in Iraq, and aid to Armenian children displaced due to war.

ABOUT GIA CHACÓN
Gia Chacón is a humanitarian, motivational speaker, and the founder of For the Martyrs. 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 her social media account @genuinelygia.
