Oct 30, 2018“It is a fundamental violation of religious freedom to force Maine taxpayers to support education in religious beliefs which they do not hold,” said Alex J.

Oct 24, 2018“This is a stunning reversal of course. It is unconscionable that the federal government, after supporting Aimee Stephens through five years of court battles, would abandon her on the Supreme Court’s doorstep," said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United.

I believe this vital constitutional principle deserves nothing less than a full-throttle defense, and I look forward to joining the fight," said Tali Israeli, AU's new strategic communications director.
