George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom

Ambassador Outreach

In December of 2014, Ambassador John L. Loeb, Jr. wrote to American ambassadors around the world to remind them of the observance of George Washington’s Birthday during Presidents’ Day on February 16, 2015 or his actual birthday on February 22.

The Ambassador encouraged the individual ambassadors to consider taking the opportunity to highlight our first president’s commitment to religious freedom by holding an event at their respective embassies that day or evening. Click on the flags below to see the ambassadorial responses.
