Today as Americans celebrate our independence as a free nation, we believe it’s important to recall a critical part of the Constitution that is important in helping to preserve our freedoms 235 years later. The First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Those protections are especially important to the work of the Texas Freedom Network, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization of citizens and community leaders who are committed to protecting religious freedom, defending individual liberties and promoting strong public schools for all. We are thankful for your support of our work.
TFN staff members wish everyone a happy and reflective Independence Day.
