Webinar: Are Foreign Law Bans
a Threat to All Faiths?

Please join us for a discussion about how your community can challenge anti-foreign law legislation in your state. Across the U.S., lawmakers are introducing bills that outlaw the use of religious, foreign, or international law in state courts, creating a host of problems for religious communities. Marriages, wills, divorces influenced by religious laws (like Jewish Halakha, Catholic Canon law, or Islamic Shariah law) could be negatively affected.
Although courts have found legislation explicitly targeting Shariah law to be unconstitutional, lawmakers in 35 states have tweaked and introduced bills banning foreign and international law over the last four years. In fact, seven states have passed anti-foreign law bills since 2010. While anti-Muslim sentiment is still motivating these laws, Americans of every faith should be concerned about their impact on their religious freedom.
