The Trump Administration’s, Ambassador-at-large for Religious Freedom spent the day in Colorado Springs. Sam Brownback is a former Congressman, Senator, and Governor of Kansas.

Brownback was hosted by Congressman Doug Lamborn.  The Ambassador is in Colorado Springs because it is home to more than 70 faith based groups. A large of the groups do work in countries around the world. "70% of the world’s people live in a religiously restricted environment where there’s some form of restriction in some cases subtle, in other cases deadly." He wants input from Colorado Springs faith leaders before and during an international religious freedom in Washington D.C. this July.
