Faith Leaders United is a diverse network of faith leaders from across the United States dedicated to protecting religious freedom for all people, while also ensuring that religion is not used to harm others.

 

We believe that religion should lift up, protect and serve others. As faith leaders, we have all seen firsthand the pain and division that is caused when some seek to use religion to discriminate or impose their particular religious beliefs on others.

Faith Leaders United is comprised of faith leaders working to create a national climate where religion is never used as an excuse to deny the advances in LGBTQ rights, women’s equality, access to comprehensive reproductive health, and racial justice.

 

Let’s work together in this critical effort to advocate for social justice, human dignity, and religious freedom for all. I hope that you will commit to joining us. 

~ Sabrina E. Dent, Senior Faith Adviser
