Jan 06, 2021“Make no mistake: These rioters threaten every freedom we claim, including religious freedom. The noose hung on the West Lawn of our Capitol and the signs calling on Jesus only re-emphasize the unholy alliance of this president with White Christian nationalists."
Jan 05, 2021“Americans United is in solidarity with every religious institution attacked and exploited by white Christian nationalists in the service of white supremacy. Religious freedom means safe and secure worship for everyone – without discrimination," said AU CEO Rachel Laser.
Dec 18, 2020“We must unite against all actions that seek to privilege white Christians above all others. We will never stop fighting for an America that fulfills its promise of freedom and equality for all of us, no matter what our religious beliefs, what we look like, who we love, or who we are," said Rachel Laser, AU CEO and President.
Dec 14, 2020“These latest Trump administration rules undermine the civil rights and religious freedom of millions of our country’s most vulnerable people who rely on social services," said AU CEO Rachel Laser. "People should never be forced to choose between obtaining taxpayer-funded services they desperately need and remaining true to their personal religious beliefs and identity.
Dec 07, 2020“It’s unconscionable, though hardly surprising, that the lame-duck Trump administration would expand the ability of federal contractors – who employ one-fifth of the American workforce – to use religious litmus tests to hire or fire employees for jobs paid for with taxpayer dollars. It’s especially heartless that the Trump administration would advance this policy in the midst of a global public health and economic crisis," said AU CEO Rachel Laser.
