100+ Faith and Community Leaders Urge President-Elect Biden to Protect Religious and Nonreligious Americans

The inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will herald a new era for our nation. As the transition team prepares for this historic moment, Interfaith Alliance is working to ensure that religious freedom — cruelly distorted by the outgoing administration to serve a political and ideological agenda — is restored to its true meaning and figures as a central consideration from Day One.

On Thursday, November 19th, 2020, over 100 national religious and community leaders urged the Biden administration to embrace a positive vision of religious freedom in a letter to the transition team. Signatories included Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance; Melissa Rogers, director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships under President Obama; and Rabbi David Saperstein, ambassador-at- large for the U.S. Department of State’s Office of International Religious Freedom from 2015 to 2017. 

Interfaith Alliance developed this call to action and solicited broad support in partnership with the Center for American Progress, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and Secular Democrats of America. Read the full letter.
