June 21, 2019: UN Day marks victory for religious freedom

One positive step was taken May 29 with a United Nations resolution to make Aug. 22 the International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, said the Brussels-based editor of Aid to the Church in Need’s Religious Freedom in the World Report.
