Religious Freedom Week

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.

Join us in marking Religious Freedom Week from June 22-29. This year’s theme is “Solidarity in Freedom”.
