Aug 10, 2018“Given all that hangs in the balance, we must not rush this process,” said Americans United President and CEO Rachel Laser. “The Senate, and the American people, deserve to see all relevant material relating to Kavanaugh.”
Aug 08, 2018“Col. Huser did the right thing. Our military is diverse, and Col. Huser’s decision to replace the Bible with a book that respects all faiths and the nonreligious was an elegant solution. She deserves to be applauded, not assailed," said AU President and CEO Rachel Laser.
Jul 30, 2018“Today’s event by the Justice Department offends the true meaning of religious freedom,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of AU. “The event was clearly designed to advance the Trump administration’s twisted and dangerous view of religious freedom, one that uses religion to discriminate and harm others. This event exposed the administration’s real agenda: to preserve the power of Christian fundamentalists.”
Jul 09, 2018“Judge Kavanaugh fails to understand that only the separation of church and state can guarantee religious freedom for all Americans. Instead, Judge Kavanaugh appears to be intent on eviscerating this fundamental American value,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United. “That fact alone should disqualify him for a seat on the Supreme Court."
Jun 27, 2018“We’re at a pivotal moment,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United. "The separation of church and state is the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans. This principle could not be more vital, given that Americans belong to hundreds of different faiths, and many are non-religious. Yet all signs indicate that President Donald Trump will appoint a justice who will undermine this foundational and vital American value.”
