WASHINGTON, March 9, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- Nigerian Christians continue to be the target of attacks and victims of religious and systematic persecution -- with attacks becoming even more aggressive and daring under the current administration.
 
Since 2015, more than 6,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria and more than 1,000 churches torched. Experts have warned the country may be nearing a tipping point and if the violence continues -- or gets worse -- the result could be economic, military and cultural upheaval around the world. The "Silent Slaughter" campaign is a global effort to stop the violence in Nigeria and bring awareness to the murder of Christians.
 
ICON will launch the campaign in the U.S on March 11. Speakers at the conference will detail their first-hand experience in Nigeria and conversations they've had with victims and families impacted by the violence. Details for the news conference are as followed:
