Sign your personal note of encouragement for Melissa Klein today
Going to work should never mean leaving your faith at the door.
But in Melissa Klein’s case, that’s exactly what happened. She was forced to close her family business, penalized $135,000 by the state government, and has endured numerous threats of violence—all for simply practicing her religious beliefs at her own business.
For Melissa, running her family bakery was much more than just a business. It was her passion, her artistic expression, a second home—and a legacy to pass on to her children.
It was a dream come true. Until the State of Oregon came along and took it all away because Melissa politely refused to create a same-sex wedding cake.
Since then, it’s been a real struggle for the Klein family. Her husband Aaron went to work driving a garbage truck to support their five children, while she has done her best to pick up freelance jobs. Besides the financial burden and the stress of being sued, they have even received graphic death threats.
First Liberty is fighting tooth and nail to secure justice for Melissa and her family. Our case is currently pending at the Supreme Court.
But just as going to work should never mean leaving your faith at the door — no one should ever have to go through religious persecution alone.
Please take a moment to write a message of encouragement for Melissa and her family today. We need to let this kind-hearted, hardworking mother of 5 know that her fellow Americans have her back in this fight.
