Hundreds of Christians Gather to Participate in March for the Martyrs in Washington, D.C.

On Saturday, hundreds of Christians gathered for a special event in Washington, D.C. to “rise up as one voice for the persecuted Church.”

The event, titled March for the Martyrs, was hosted by Gia Chacon, the founder of the non-profit organization, For The Martyrs. Up to 1,000 Christians from across the U.S. gathered at the National Mall on Saturday for a kick-off rally, followed by a prayer march to the White House, and the evening event “Night for the Martyrs” held at the JW Marriott hotel.

“I think now more than ever, it’s important that Christians across all denominations gather together as one unified voice,” Chacon said in a recent interview with The Christian Post. “It’s so important that we’re standing up now, as brothers and sisters in Christ in the United States, being a voice for our persecuted brothers and sisters.”
