America’s founders made religious freedom our First Freedom for good reason. It is the foundational freedom for all of our constitutional freedoms. And if our first freedom falls, all of our freedoms will fall.

That’s why this election year is so critical to our nation. Now more than ever we need to know where candidates stand on their support of religious freedom. The future of faith and religious liberty is on the ballot.

From now until Election Day, First Liberty is helping educate people of faith and all Americans learn how they can make a difference with their vote. Voting this November is a must!

The Future of the Supreme Court Is at Stake

If you value our justice system, you need to read this. Radical groups and politicians are trying to destroy the Supreme Court. Your vote in the 2024 election could have big implications for our nation’s highest court. Fighting for religious freedom, or any constitutional freedom, means nothing if our system of justice is gone.

The Power to Change America is in Your Vote

Anti-religious-liberty candidates keep getting elected, who then promote their anti-religious-liberty policies. How? The answer is obvious: People of faith largely stayed home and didn’t vote. Protecting religious freedom and all our God-given liberties isn’t just a battle that we’re fighting in the courtroom. It’s a fight that we can also win at the ballot box.



Only a fraction of Americans who identify religious liberty as important actually votes in the major elections. If more of us took the voting process more seriously, our culture and government would not be nearly as hostile to religious liberty.

Please give and support First Liberty’s educational efforts. You can help us reach millions more Americans with this critical message. Your vote matters. Going to the ballot box is how We The People can make sure we get to keep freely living out our faith.
