LEGAL SERVICES

We provide legal services to those suffering religious discrimination, regardless of your religious belief or affiliation. We especially seek those willing to advance the law by making a long term commitment to engaging in trials and appeals. This is known as “impact litigation” because it helps to change, and hopefully strengthen the law.

We can  also provide referrals. For more information, or to obtain help, click here.

Prisoner Access to Religious Services and Dietary Needs

Congress conducted hearings in the late 90s after the Supreme Court struck down portions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as unconstitutional. Congress determined that the most prevalent religious liberty problems that required legislative attention involved the rights of prisoners and land use conflicts involving religion. Hence, Congress enacted the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000, known as RLUIPA.

The Church State Council provides counseling assistance both to the incarcerated, and those seeking to minister to them, about their rights under this legislation. We have helped prisoners obtain access to religious services, literature, and to meet their religious dietary needs.
