Our Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees religious freedom to all, but throughout our history this concept has been tested and refined amidst the brutal persecution of Catholics, Baptists, Quakers, Mormons, African slaves, Native Americans, Muslims, Jews, and Jehovah’s Witnesses. National leaders like James Madison, George Washington, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and even George W. Bush have pushed it forward, but it’s been ordinary Americans like us who have made the greatest difference. Is our hard-won religious freedom in jeopardy today?

Our guide on this journey is Steven Waldman in his book Sacred Liberty: America’s Long, Bloody, and Ongoing Struggle for Religious Freedom (HarperCollins, 2019).
