U.S. First Amendment Voice Alliance
The First Amendment Voice Alliance seeks to encourage Americans to understand and exercise their First Amendment rights and responsibilities as self-governing citizens through a collaborative campaign of education, awareness, and advocacy. The Global Peace Foundation served as an incubator for the First Amendment Voice Alliance and continues to work with the Alliance on its vital programs.
The First Amendment Voice Alliance has launched a comprehensive national campaign that reaffirms and promotes U.S. First Amendment rights and responsibilities. Through education, awareness, advocacy, network development, and the promotion of grassroots solutions, the Alliance hopes to address issues and policies affecting First Amendment rights; to build a broad pluralistic constituency of citizens, regardless of religion, race, culture, or socio-economic background; and to demonstrate through grassroots solutions the power of self-governing ethical citizens engaged in solving problems facing our communities.
Religious Freedom Protections
GPF leaders have served as vocal advocates engaging with the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships for guaranteeing religious freedom protections in the public square, and have participated in a non-partisan capacity throughout the last three U.S. administrations.
Among the principal functions of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships is partnering with civil society to organize more effective efforts to serve people in need across the country and around the world and optimizing the efforts of faith-based and other secular communities to do so.
In addition, the Office works to ensure that policy decisions and programs throughout the federal government is consistent with the policy set forth in the Executive Order with respect to faith-based and other community initiatives, and to bring concerns, ideas, and policy options to leaders for assisting, strengthening, and replicating best practices and partnerships, with faith-based and other community organizations.
