UPDATE: AU National Staff to Tour Florida to Share Concerns About Amendment 8

May 14, 2012

May 14 to May 17
Meet Maggie Garrett, AU Legislative Director, and Rev. Steven Baines, AU Assistant Field Director for Religious Outreach

Americans United has concerns about Florida’s Amendment 8. The goal of Amendment 8 is to allow taxpayer money to flow to religious schools and houses of worship. Passage of the Amendment would strip the religious freedom protections currently enshrined in the Florida Constitution, which would allow for the direct funding of religious organizations that provide faith-based social services, and open the door to taxpayer funded vouchers for religious schools. Amendment 8 would harm Florida’s religious communities, Florida’s children, civil rights, and church-state separation. Help spread the word-tell your friends, family, and neighbors the truth about Amendment 8.

Hear about how Amendment 8 will:
• Harm Religious Communities
• Harm Civil Rights
• Harm Church-State Separation
• Harm Our Children
• Misuse Your Tax Dollars
