About

The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute is a nonpartisan national initiative focused on educating the public about the religious liberty principles of the First Amendment.

Reorganized in 2010 to expand on religious liberty initiatives begun by the First Amendment Center in 1994, the Religious Freedom Center has sponsored numerous public programs at the Newseum, developed partnerships with national and international organizations, and convened a broad range of religious and civil liberties groups.

VISION

A world committed to religious freedom as an inalienable right for all people.

We are committed to a vision of a pluralistic society where people respect the rights of others, engage one another civilly, and live together despite our deepest difference.  We call this authentic pluralism.

MISSION

Our mission of the Religious Freedom Center is to educate the public about religion, law and civic engagement so that our communities are equipped to protect the rights of people of all religious traditions and none.

APPROACH

The Religious Freedom Center carries out its mission in three ways:

  1. EDUCATING LEADERS
  2. ENGAGING THE PUBLIC
  3. PROMOTE CIVIL DIALOGUE
