Greetings MRFF Supporters!
First, I want to draw your attention to the incredible honor that was bestowed upon MRFF at the end of last month, when we were invited to submit testimony for the first-ever Congressional hearing on the civil rights of Muslim Americans, initiated by Senator Dick Durbin. MRFF has a well-established track record of fighting for religious freedom in the U.S. military, including for many clients of the Muslim faith. Our testimony package detailed the atrocious treatment experienced by just a few of our clients; how many are out there suffering in silence? This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why your support is so vitally important - if we weren't there to submit this evidence of discrimination against Muslims in the military for this historic hearing in Congress, who would?
Next, please be sure to take a look at the invitation for our upcoming 6th Annual MRFF Award Luncheon. We'll be presenting our yearly Thomas Jefferson Awards for Civil Rights Activism, as well as our first-ever John Adams Awards for Pro Bono Legal Action. We are proud to have a prestigious group of honorees this year for both awards.
I would like to thank the U.S. Army War College for inviting me to speak at last week's Annual Strategy Conference on "American Society and its Profession of Arms." Each time one of the military's learning institutions welcomes MRFF's presence, it affords us a valuable opportunity to present our message to a very key demographic: the future leadership of the United States Armed Forces.
Finally, stay tuned for news on another story MRFF will shortly be breaking on a major national television news network. We'll have more on this latest case of truly shocking religious tyranny in the military very soon.
As always, we continue to rely on the generosity of supporters like you to continue our fight in the courts and in the media. Please make a fully tax-deductible donation today.
