There are a number of groups in the United States that focus on religious freedom and first amendment rights. These watchdog organizations are typically at the forefront of legal cases involving religious discrimination, hate crimes, and the separation of church and state. Some of them have a specific focus, like the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which addresses issues of concern to service members. Others are more general, and work for the rights of all Americans equally.

It should be noted that while watchdog groups do exist in other countries, this article is specifically about the organizations that are active in the United States.

Let’s take a look at some of the groups working towards your religious freedom and protecting your guaranteed first amendment rights.
