Religious Freedom Week

United States flag with the words In God We Trust superimposed.

Religious Liberty Is Our First, Most Cherished Liberty

Religious freedom must be protected, upheld, and enabled not only in Minnesota, or even just the United States, but worldwide. Because God created mankind to worship him, we must help ensure every person is given the freedom to fulfill this core human calling to worship God.
