First Liberty Institute is engaged in defending and restoring religious liberty in America - particularly in our churches, schools, the public arena, and in our military.

First Liberty Institute is defending veterans memorials and monuments across the country. We oppose attempts to destroy a veterans memorial or monument which contains religious imagery or text. Examples include the Bladensburg Veterans Memorial, and potentially headstones or markers at cemeteries such as those at Arlington, the Meuse-Argonne, the Punchbowl, and others. American patriots are buried around these national treasures. Your donation will help defend them against wanton destruction.
First Liberty is preparing for a nationwide effort to protect the First Amendment rights of high school students. Top students and valedictorians have earned the right to speak at graduation ceremonies and many will want to honor God. Some will be hindered, as our client Angela Hildenbrand was, when a judge decreed she’d be thrown in jail if she prayed. We won Angela’s right to pray and speak of Christ in her graduation speech. Your gift will help Liberty protect these rights.
First Liberty offers pro bono legal assistance to those in the military, the churches, the schools, and the public arena whose 1st Amendment religious rights are threatened. We help protect the rights of students and teachers, military and government workers, pastors and churches, and to defend our veterans memorials. Please visit us at for information on our cases.
