Tag Archives: National Religious Freedom Day

Saturday, 1/16/20, Public Square

National Religious Freedom Day commemorates the Virginia General Assembly’s adoption of Thomas Jefferson’s landmark Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom on January 16, 1786.  This vital document became the basis for the separation of church and state, and led to freedom of religion for all Americans as protected in the religion clause in the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.

Celebrate your beliefs and your right to hold them!
