First Liberty Institute defends people of all faiths who are facing legal retribution for expressing their religious beliefs in public. At First Liberty, we equip people with the knowledge they need to safeguard their rights, and are committed to restoring those rights when they are violated.

For the government to restrict a person’s religious expression to their home or house of worship violates both the freedom of religion and the freedom of speech, rights guaranteed in the First Amendment of the Constitution. These rights have been upheld time and again by case precedent and federal and state laws.

In our fight to preserve religious freedom in the public arena, we specifically protect the following:

  • Religious speech in public locations
  • Public religious displays
  • Religious expression in the workplace for employees, employers, customers and vendors
