At First Liberty, we had much to celebrate during Independence Day this year. If you missed it, last week we won not one U.S. Supreme Court Victory, but TWO. Right now, Americans can celebrate more religious freedom than ever before.
There’s plenty more we’re working on, including waiting on several major decisions from federal courts. Watch this short message from First Liberty President Kelly Shackelford to learn more.
Supreme Court decision month is upon us, and First Liberty is busy at work. As the Court ends its term, we await a decision on our Faithful Carrier case, Groff v Dejoy. While we expect the decision to come down at the end of the month, it could be any day.
There’s plenty more going on across the Institute, so watch this short message from First Liberty President, Kelly Shackelford.
As we await a decision from the Supreme Court on our Faithful Carrier case, things continue to heat up at First Liberty.
We’ve got several new cases launching soon along with a very exciting announcement.
We’re pleased to announce The Case for Liberty, a BRAND-NEW podcast. Separate from First Liberty Live!, The Case for Liberty is a biweekly program offering a deep dive into the most important religious freedom cases of our day with some of the nation’s top religious freedom attorneys.
Last week, we argued at the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Gerald Groff – our Faithful Carrier. Kelly Shackelford, President CEO and Chief Counsel, and Jeff Mateer, Chief Legal Officer, were in the courtroom when it happened.
Today, they join First Liberty Live! to give exclusive insights on what it’s like inside the courtroom, along with a discussion of the arguments presented in the case.
April looks to be our biggest month of the year so far as we’re going back to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Gerald Groff – our Faithful Carrier. When he was forced to quit his job because his religious beliefs weren’t honored by the USPS, First Liberty stepped in to fight for him – and now we’re doing it at our nation’s highest court.
On April 18th at 8:45am CST, we’ll be outside the courtroom to stream the full oral argument. Plus, you’ll hear President, CEO and Chief Counsel, Kelly Shackelford, explain what you’re about to hear inside the courtroom.
We have plenty of other cases and updates across the Institute this month; watch this short message from Kelly Shackelford as he breaks down this month’s action.
March is set up to be another busy month at First Liberty. We’re defending several first responders in cases that are vitally important to our liberty.
First up is Jacob Kersey, a young police officer from Georgia. Jacob was silenced for sharing his religious beliefs on marriage in a Facebook post and forced to leave his job. FLI has written a demand letter asking his superiors to apologize.
Next is Fire Chief Ron Hittle, a firefighter who served for over 20 years and was fired for attending a leadership conference hosted at a church. His distinguished service didn’t protect him from his anti-faith superiors.
Watch this message from President, CEO and Chief Counsel, Kelly Shackelford as he unpacks this month’s action across the Institute:
As we enter February, we’re set to face off against the Biden administration in our Navy SEALs case where we are fighting for our Navy soldiers to restore their religious freedom
The oral argument is set for next Monday, February 6th at the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. We’ll be going Live! for a special pre-hearing episode of First Liberty Live! Immediately following the episode, we’ll play the full oral argument as it happens from the court. You won’t want to miss this special episode.
In addition to our SEALs argument, we’ve got plenty more going on in February – including prepping for our latest U.S. Supreme Court case. Watch this message from President, CEO and Chief Counsel, Kelly Shackelford as he unpacks this month’s action across the Institute.

Now more than ever before, we are winning at the highest level, and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do in 2023. Here’s a short video from President, CEO and Chief Counsel, Kelly Shackelford, unpacking this month across the Institute.
Right now, there’s hope on the horizon for religious liberty. Over the past six months, we’ve had victory after victory for our First Freedom.
Between our two Supreme Court wins and more yet to come, we’re fighting – and winning – to restore faith across our country.
