Michael De Dora is director of the Center for Inquiry’s Office of Public Policy and he’s also CFI’s representative to the United Nations. He’s currently the president of the UN’s NGO Committee on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
I spoke with him about what we can do about the bloggers currently under attack in Bangladesh, whether our government is doing anything to protect atheists overseas, and what his conversations are like with the Saudi Arabian representatives at the United Nations.
During the show, Michael mentioned the Freethought Emergency Fund, which helps CFI “assist several individuals and families in escaping to safety, either temporarily or permanently.” If you can make a donation, please do so here.
We also discussed House Resolution 396, which calls on the “Government of Bangladesh to protect the human rights of all its citizens.” Consider asking your member of Congress to support the bill.
