Victory in Iowa State Employee Charitable Campaign Case

In response to a lawsuit filed by CLS's Center for Law & Religious Freedom on behalf of the Association of Faith-Based Organizations, the State of Iowa has repealed unconstitutional rules governing access to its state employee charitable campaign.

The rules excluded any charitable organization that “engages in any way in sectarian activities,” advocates “religious viewpoints,” or “discriminates” on the basis of religion in employment.

See the joint CLS-Alliance Defense Fund press release or the CLS Center website for more information.
