When your faith has been threatened, your ability to practice your faith is at risk.
It is the same for people who live in churches, synagogues, and other places of worship, where they can be threatened or silenced.
But as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 makes clear, religious liberty is not a right, it is a privilege.
And so when the Christian community is threatened, the community is being threatened in ways we may never imagine.
That is why we must act now.
We must take action now to protect our churches and congregations from persecution and intimidation.
We must help those in religious liberty struggle to survive and thrive.
The most vulnerable among us must be protected, too.
The National Coalition for Religious Liberty is here to help you.
If you have an organization or a faith-based organization in your life that is struggling, please reach out to us.
We can help you, and others, in their time of need.
