On Monday, a group of conservative Christian women gathered for a prayer rally at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to criticize feminist activists and church-state separation.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State has been fighting for church-state separation for 70 years. A vital part of our work has always involved listening to the voices of young people who find new and effective ways to speak out for religious freedom and stand up to those who use religion to harm others.

Each year, Americans United recognizes a young person under the age of 25 who has advocated for religious freedom and church-state separation in their community with the David Norr Youth Activist Award.
