Celebrating Religious Freedom Day in the U.S. [video]

The United States celebrates Religious Freedom Day on January 16.

The ability for Americans to worship as they see fit is central to their identity and enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

The United States also supports freedom of religion around the world and has hosted the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom for the past two years.

“Religious freedom isn’t just a Christian concern, a Jewish concern, a Muslim concern, a Buddhist concern, a Hindu concern, or a humanist concern,” Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo said at the 2019 ministerial. “It is everyone’s concern.”
