DRL’s goal for religious freedom in the EAP region is to promote diverse, multi-ethnic and multi-religious, and inclusive societies that respect the rights of all people. Applications should propose specific approaches that transform the increasingly constrained environment for religious freedom which fuels intercommunal distrust, hostility, and violence.

- Expand the capacity of civil society organizations and religious communities to document abuses and to create constructive local and national advocacy campaigns which complement other efforts.
- Work with business leaders and others to create or strengthen voluntary policies and activities which emphasize commitments to non-discrimination in private sector employment, rental housing, academic institutions, and public accommodations.

- The implementation of mutual respect activities and public messaging through targeted, local language campaigns.
- The use of existing innovative technological tools that combat discrimination and intolerance, particularly those countering on-line hate speech while preserving the exercise of free speech.
