For the past few years I have been working on a number of different projects. I spent four years as the Chief of Staff for the Georgia Department of Education, working directly with Dr. John Barge, the State School Superintendent. I also headed up John’s campaign when he challenged the Governor of Georgia for his job. It was a great experience!
During all of this time I have continued to work in the area of international human rights, but not as a fulltime position. I worked to protect freedom of speech at the London Olympics. I have worked with pastors to help them set up their churches properly in light of the ever changing atmosphere we find these days.
Now, I am ramping up my human rights work again. We will continue to work with churches and leaders of non-profit organizations around the world, advising them regarding their rights and privileges. We have recently signed an agreement to help the victims of sex trafficking regain the documents that are used for identification, such as passports and national identity cards. This important work is a minor part of the work that goes into helping these victims regain their freedom and their lives. While we are sitting out the coming Olympic Games in Rio we will continue to work with missionaries who attend these events for the purpose of sharing their faith in public places.
Our team will be in Bulgaria in the middle of June, training Christian leaders and continuing to develop “Beyond the Four Walls with Derek Schneider” a television program that highlights the work of the History Makers Society.
