October marks LGBTQ History Month – a month dedicated to celebrating icons of the LGBTQ community. This LGBTQ History Month and every month, Americans United is proud to stand with our LGBTQ neighbors and oppose discrimination in the name of religion.
A magazine published by the American Bar Association (ABA) bestowed honors on Americans United recently when it named the organization a “Human Rights Hero.”
The ABA’s Human Rights magazine, which is published by the organization’s Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities, published a special issue on religious liberty and church-state issues in January. The publication included a guest column by Americans United Executive Director Barry W. Lynn, who is an attorney as well as an ordained minister.
