On July 30, 2018, then Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during his speech at the Department of Justice Religious Liberty Summit, announced that he was creating a Religious Liberty Task Force. The Task Force will work to implement the guidance on religious freedom released by the DOJ on October 6, 2017. The guidance serves as a blueprint for using religion to discriminate, especially against women, LGBTQ people, and religious minorities. It significantly weakens the principle of church-state separation.
Our country is strongest when we are all free to believe or not, as we see fit, and to practice our faith without hurting others. The Task Force, however, will advance the Trump administration’s twisted and dangerous view of religious freedom, one that uses religion to discriminate and harm others.
Status Announced on July 30, 2018
