Today we had the second ever Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, and we had the largest ever human rights related gathering at the U.S. Department of State. Religious freedom, what we call our first freedom, is not merely an American value. It's a universal one, and it is a human right. Too many people in too many places suffer violence and persecution merely from exercising that human right.

This week, we affirm our support for the freedoms that enable us to meet openly and to speak openly about the importance of faith in our communities and in our countries. But we go a step further: we invite each other -- no, we challenge each other to take up the mission that the world's great faith traditions call for. To live lives and build communities for believers and nonbelievers alike. To share a tunic with him who has none. USAID will proudly join all of you in that effort. Thank you.
