The purpose of the RLP is to encourage and nurture partnering and collaboration among Christian organizations focused on religious liberty. The RLP seeks to work more intentionally together in addressing advocacy, assistance, research, and in raising the awareness of religious restrictions globally. Though members of the RLP are Christian-based organisations, the RLP supports and advocates religious freedom for all.
Over the past several years, the RLP has collaboratively addressed religious liberty issues and challenges in many countries including Afghanistan, China, India, the Middle East, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.
