MRFF In A Moment

Landmark Events and Recent News about the
Military Religious Freedom Foundation

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) is solely dedicated to fighting for the Constitutionally Guaranteed Separation of Church and State for our U.S. Military Service Members.

MRFF is a nationally recognized civil rights advocacy organization that currently represents well over 73,000 and counting active-duty U.S. marines, sailors, soldiers, airmen, cadets, midshipmen, national guard, reservists, and veterans, including matters involving High School JROTC around the nation, about 95% of whom self-identify as practicing Christians.

Our MRFF clients have faced unconstitutional religious church/state violations and noxious abuse from their military superiors who almost exclusively brandish one particular version of Christianity, fundamentalist Christianity, as a weapon to intimidate, menace, harass, subdue, and terrify their otherwise helpless armed forces subordinates.

Our client base consists of Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Native American Spiritualist, Humanist, Pagan, Atheist, slightly over 18% of all Muslim Americans in the U.S. military, other minority faith and non-faith military members, and over 1,000 LGBTQ military members. On November 13, 2014, for the sixth consecutive year, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation was officially nominated again for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize, its seventh total nomination.
