Precedent Setting Victories at the Supreme Court

From the military, to our children’s schools, houses of worship, charities, businesses and the marketplace, our local veterans’ memorials and our neighborhoods, Americans have the opportunity to experience more religious freedom than in 50 years. How is this possible? Because of several historic and precedent-setting triumphs at the Supreme Court:

The Faithful Carrier

June 29, 2023: In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of postal worker Gerald Groff who would request off to observe the Sunday Sabbath. This requires workplaces to respect religious accommodations so that employees across the country can work and live according to their faith.

The Fight Continues: What’s Still at Stake

We have many victories to celebrate. But the fight for faith and religious liberty is far from over.

First Liberty is handling an increasing number of cases legal and requests for help. There are many challenges ahead, but we also have incredible opportunities to secure more victories and leave a legacy of freedom for the next generation, our children and grandchildren.

Fighting Cancel Culture

A hostile corporate culture is wreaking havoc on religious employees. People are scared to live out their faith in fear of being harassed or even fired. Clients like Valerie Kloosterman, Lacey Smith, and Ron Hittle lost their jobs because of their religious beliefs. We’re fighting for them and for religious employees across the country, and we need your help to win.
