Free to Believe


Family Research Council (FRC) is partnering with two highly regarded non-profit legal groups to review the cases submitted to this website by people who believe that they have suffered discrimination from a federal agency based on their religious beliefs or practices. Both organizations are known nationally for the work they have done for years to protect religious liberty for all Americans—in schools, in houses of worship and religious institutions of all faiths, in the military, and throughout the public arena. We are committed to ensuring that all Americans who interact with federal agencies should fully enjoy their God-given right to religious freedom—America’s “First Freedom.”

If you believe that as a non-military federal employee, contractor, or citizen, your religious liberty rights have been threatened or violated by a federal agency, please fill out the form below and send us the relevant information so that we and our legal partners may determine how to be of assistance. Of course, each request for legal help will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our partners will be able to offer legal services for every matter for which we are contacted. If you are a member of the military, and feel that your religious liberty rights have been violated within the context of your service, please visit:

In some instances, even if there is a religious liberty issue implicated, FRC and its two partnering legal organizations may not be able provide further consideration due to unforeseeable legal issues or due to limited resources and/or our lack of capacity to take on new matters at any given time. No referrals for general legal action will be provided.
