Religious Freedom Sunday: Opportunity to be reminded of students’ rights | One News Now

One News Now: Matt Sharp, legal counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, explains that since 1993 the presiding U.S. president has proclaimed January 16 as Religious Freedom Day and called on Americans observe the event in their homes, schools, and places of worship. Sharp, Matt (ADF)”Religious Freedom Sunday is an opportunity for churches to celebrate this [and] to recognize the teachers and educators in their churches about the great work they do,” he tells OneNewsNow. “But also [it's an opportunity for] taking time to inform students and teachers and others about the freedom of religious expression that students have while at school.”
