Since religious communities are typically concerned with human rights issues, they are often eager to express support for, and take action to defend, civil liberties. Furthermore, many religious communities have come under attack in the wake of recent antiterrorism laws and policies that threaten liberties, such as the USA PATRIOT Act and the Homeland Security Act. To stand up against such infringements, religious communities have become actively involved in the Bill of Rights defense movement. We hope that more and more organizations will come forward and voice their opposition to governmental action that erodes our rights and liberties. The following is a set of recommendations and possible steps to take in order to pass a resolution or other statement on behalf of your religious organization affirming its support of civil liberties.
