Seventh-day Adventist Church, Public Affairs and Religious Liberty Department
“The General Conference Department of Public Affairs & Religious Liberty (PARL) is charged with representing the Seventh-day Adventist Church to national leaders from around the world, the United Nations and other international bodies, the Government of the United States of America, and to other faith communities. Further, it supports and helps to coordinate the work of the PARL departments in each of the 13 Adventist world divisions and their constituent bodies.
The PARL Department focuses primarily on ensuring the God-given universal human right of religious freedom becomes a universal reality. It also works in cooperation with other church departments to advocate public policy positions on issues in areas as diverse as health, education, peace issues, environmental protection, women’s issues, children’s issues, the rights of prisoners, and aid and development. …”
