Defending Democracy with Informed Community Action in WNC

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Religious Freedom Action Team

Our Vision is to create an environment in which each individual is able to make religious choices without judgment and without imposing those beliefs on others by actions of refusal to act.

Our Mission is to promote understanding and acceptance: to educate people on different faiths and practices: to support people of all religions who are being marginalized (including our Muslim neighbors and the Native Americans involved in the Dakota pipeline protest)
