Hagia Sophia Call for hearing action

Hagia Sophia is a museum and a World Heritage Site open to all and appreciated for its stunning architecture and its history, including its history as a Byzantine era basilica. However, there is a growing movement in Turkey to convert Hagia Sophia into a mosque. Not only are certain politicians trying to pass a bill to convert Hagia Sophia, but this year, daily prayers were read during Ramadan. 

Ask the Chairs of the International Religious Freedom Caucus and the Congressional Hellenic Israel Alliance to hold a hearing on Hagia Sophia...the more attention we bring to this "creeping conversion" of Hagia Sophia, the more likely it will be that we will succeed in protecting and preserving this historic site.
