Many gathered at the Shenandoah Country Club on July 24 for the premiere of the long-awaited documentary, Faithkeepers, that would put a face and voice to the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East. The documentary highlights the persecutions that Christians and other minorities are currently facing at the hands of groups like ISIS. As well, the documentary traces back a century of persecution, including the genocide of World War I that took nearly two thirds of the Chaldean/Assyrian/Syriac population.
In attendance were special guest speakers Richard Green, executive producer, Ryan Mauro, Clarion Project National Security Analyst, and Nahren Anweya, Assyrian-American human rights activist for Christians.
