Religious freedom is about fairness. We don’t treat people differently because they believe differently than we do.

Yet many religious minorities in America still face discrimination in their daily lives because of their religious beliefs. For example, President Donald Trump has tried to ban Muslims from entering our country. In other cases, local governments have aimed to prevent congregations from building houses of worship in certain towns and neighborhoods.

Students of minority faiths are sometimes treated as second-class citizens by school officials who try to force students to pray or deny students the right to wear articles of faith at school.

Our country’s diversity and pluralism make us strong. Americans United fights to protect the rights of religious minorities to practice their faith without facing discrimination or harm.
