IRFA, with our allies, engages in advocacy as a vital aspect of our work to safeguard and advance the religious freedom that faith-based organizations need so that they can offer their distinctive good works to society.
Our work is upstream of the courts and litigation. We work to shape laws, regulations, and government programs to be fair and accessible to faith-based organizations. And we help to educate lawyers, lawmakers, government officials, and the media concerning the importance of institutional religious freedom and the scope and value of the faith sector.
We advocate to government and the public for the rules and conditions that enable faith-based organizations to flourish. As needed, with allies, we lobby legislators to advance good policies and modify or defeat harmful legislation.
