Vice President of the United States Mike Pence to Keynote
2017 IDC Solidarity Dinner
Washington, DC— In Defense of Christians (IDC) is proud to announce that Vice President Mike Pence will be giving the Keynote Address on Wednesday, October 25, at IDC’s 2017 Summit: American Leadership and Securing the Future of Christians in the Middle East. Vice President Pence will offer his remarks at 6:30PM at the JW Marriott 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC during IDC’s Fourth Annual Solidarity Dinner for Christians in the Middle East.
“Vice President Pence’s commitment to Christians and other vulnerable minorities in the Middle East sends a strong message to Christian, Yazidi, and other victim communities in the region that they are not forgotten,” said IDC Executive Director Philippe Nassif. “It is consistent with American values and interests that these communities survive in the Middle East.”
IDC’s summit program will emphasize the delivery of U.S. aid to genocide victim communities in Iraq and Syria; stability and security in Lebanon, particularly solving the refugee crisis and the disarmament of non-governmental militias; recognition of the Armenian genocide; bringing to justice the accessories of ISIS; and promoting equality and security for Christians and other minorities throughout the region.
