How We Can Help You

Church closures

Do the authorities treat your church like second-class citizens?

Worship services are essential services. Your church has the right to remain open and your congregation has the right to gather freely.

First Amendment violations

Do you have to compromise your convictions to make a living?

You can live, work, and express yourself artistically in accordance with your faith. Some famous recent cases involve high-profile disputes over wedding cakes, but your rights apply in other contexts, too.

Conscience rights

Do certain medical procedures violate your religious beliefs?

Then your organization does not have to provide, fund, or insure them. That includes abortion, contraception, gender transition, and more.
