There are seven million Jehovah's Witnesses in 230 countries worldwide. They spend 1.3 billion hours a year ministering door-to-door, making them one of America's favorite punch lines. Despite their 130-plus-year history, this Christian group is still often derided and misunderstood. While protecting their own rights, Jehovah's Witnesses have won a record number of U.S. Supreme Court cases, expanding freedoms for all Americans. They refuse blood transfusions, choose non-violence, and are moral conservatives who stay out of politics. Jehovah's Witnesses are exemplary in modeling how groups with increasingly polarizing religious and social views can peacefully coexist.
