We were proud to join a number of national allies in a letter urging congressional leaders to repeal the Johnson Amendment, a statute that limits the extent to which a 501(c)(3) organization can speak on political matters.
Specifically, the law has effectively squelched these organizations’ freedom of religion and speech by putting them at risk of losing their nonprofit status if they speak on behalf of or in opposition to a candidate for public office.
The proposed Free Speech Fairness Act would protect the speech and religious freedom rights of 501(c)(3) organizations and their leaders.
