The mission of the North American Division Public Affairs & Religious Liberty (PARL) ministry is simple but all-encompassing: to proclaim and defend the God-given gift of religious freedom which is integral to our identity as Seventh-day Adventist Christians.

The most effective way for us to accomplish this mission is to build relationships with civic leaders, religious groups, and community leaders throughout North America.  We believe in the power of the “Advent Message,” which compels us to defend freedom of conscience for all people, everywhere.
