We are thrilled to have AU supporters make their voices heard in the fight against discrimination in the name of religion. We are coming together today to urge Congress to pass the Do No Harm Act, because our country is strongest when we are all free to believe or not, as we see fit, and to practice our faith without hurting others. But the Trump Administration continues to misuse religious freedom to justify discrimination. That’s why Congress must act.
The Do No Harm Act will restore the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act to its original intent: It will preserve the law's power to protect religious freedom while also clarifying that it may not be used to harm others. The Do No Harm Act will ensure that religious freedom remains a shield to protect religious exercise and is not used as a sword to harm women, LGBTQ people, religious minorities and others by undermining nondiscrimination laws, evading child labor laws, refusing to perform duties as a government employee, denying access to health care, overriding workplace laws, or refusing to provide government-funded services under a contract. The bill has earned over 200 co-sponsors in the House and 30 in the Senate; look here to see if your Members of Congress are on the list. Learn more from our factsheet.
