CAP: Religious discrimination on the rise in Arizona schools.

Center for Arizona Policy (CAP) is receiving an alarming number of reports of religious discrimination in schools from all over Arizona. Nearly every week, parents and students who have been discriminated against because of their faith contact CAP asking for help. Your generous support has allowed CAP to help these parents and students in a variety of ways. But, it's time reverse this disturbing trend once and for all.
Passing the Students' Religious Liberties Act (SRLA) this legislation will do that. Will you help?

The rapidly increasing number of discrimination reports from students makes it nearly impossible for CAP to handle them on a case-by-case basis as we have in the past. Passing a Student Religious Liberty Act this year would establish clear guidelines to prevent schools from discriminating against students based on their religious views - and likely eliminate most, if not all of the religious discrimination cases CAP is involved in. I recently talked to a good friend in Texas who told me there hasn't been one case of religious discrimination in Texas schools there since they passed a Student Religious Liberty Act.

I believe we can accomplish the same thing here in Arizona. There are two ways you can help. I hope you'll consider both. Please click here to learn more.
