First Liberty is the nation’s largest legal organization solely dedicated to protecting religious liberty for all Americans. Our mission is to defend and restore religious liberty in our schools, for our churches and houses of worship, inside the military, and throughout the public arena. We believe that true religious liberty means recognizing the fundamental right of every individual—including all ages, races, genders, and faiths—to follow their conscience and live according to their beliefs.
