Americans United defends church-state separation in courtrooms across the land. From state courts to the U.S. Supreme Court, we stand up for the constitutional principles that ensure freedom of conscience.
We are regularly involved in a large number of cases, helping to shape legal precedent on behalf of church-state separation. We initiate lawsuits and we provide legal counsel and support in other cases.
Many church-state conflicts can be resolved without going to court. We often write to government officials about constitutional problems and correct the situation without filing a lawsuit.
