ACLU vigorously defends the right of all Americans to freely practice their religion and express their faith, or to choose not to practice a religion. We oppose government endorsement of one set of religious beliefs and practices over another, and we support individuals’ right to worship as they please without government interference or influence.
In the wake of Election Day and subsequent rise of hate crimes on vulnerable communities, ACLU wants to make sure those who feel at risk know their rights and have access to the resources they need.
