Members of Congress return to their home states each August during Congress’ annual recess. This makes it a great time for you to reach out to your Senators and Representative at home during town hall meetings, in-person visits, and other events. This August, let your Members of Congress know that you stand for the separation of church and state and oppose attempts to undermine the rights of others through so-called religious freedom bills.
We expect to see continued efforts in Congress to enact legislation that would place one’s religious beliefs over the rights of others. These legislators want to allow religious beliefs to be used as an excuse to deny healthcare, refuse to provide services, and disobey laws protecting Americans from discrimination and abuse.
