Jun 25, 2019"Congress should pass the Do No Harm Act, a simple yet critical bill designed to restore RFRA to its original intent. It will preserve the law's power to protect religious freedom, while clarifying it may not be used to harm others," AU President & CEO Rachel Laser testified before Congress.
Jun 20, 2019“The Supreme Court’s misguided decision to allow government to play favorites and prominently display religious symbols as public war memorials dishonors our country’s veterans and the fundamental principle of religious freedom they fought and died for," said AU President and CEO Rachel Laser. "The towering Bladensburg Cross is an inherently Christian symbol that excludes thousands of non-Christian veterans and ignores the tremendous sacrifices they made."
Jun 12, 2019“People’s lives are at risk if the Trump administration’s Denial of Care Rule is allowed to go into effect,” said Richard B. Katskee, legal director for Americans United. “This rule is so unconstitutional and unconscionable that it cannot be allowed to take effect. We urge the court to block it.”
Jun 06, 2019“The Denial of Care Rule risks patients’ lives, threatens our public health safety net and corrupts the true meaning of religious freedom,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United. “The rule in particular hampers Baltimore’s ability to protect the health of its 600,000 residents and address the city’s unique health challenges.”
Jun 05, 2019“With the onslaught of religious refusal policies coming out of this administration, it is more important than ever that we enact legislative safeguards. This bill is critical not only because it protects those who are being discriminated against in the name of religious freedom, but because it protects our nation’s most vulnerable children from being denied a home,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United.
