One of the most important freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution is religious freedom.

Religious freedom is the right to decide which religion to follow – if any – without government coercion or interference. Indeed, religion and belief are stronger without government support.

Religious freedom ensures that you can decide whether or how to pray, that you cannot be banned from entering this country because or your religion and that no one else can use his or her religious beliefs to harm you or deny your civil rights and civil liberties.

Americans United fights each and every day to protect the rights of all Americans to believe – or not – by ensuring there is a healthy distance between religion and government.
