2017 Kentucky Student Liberty Law
#1. Student Religious and Political Liberty Law
On March 16th, 2017, Governor Matt Bevin signed SB17 into Kentucky state law. This is a substantial victory for liberty for Kentucky public school students. Also, make sure that students and parents of students know that they can pray during non-class time and the same sort of legal right to religious and political expression as they do other forms of expression,
This anti-discrimination, pro-1st amendment bill
included a provision for before-school and after-school clubs.

#2. National Motto "In God We Trust" in Public Schools
On March 25th, 2019, Governor Matt Bevin signed HB46 into Kentucky state law (KRS 158.195). This law requires that the national motto be placed in each pre-university government school in a prominent location such as a school entryway, hallway, or cafeteria room.
The law allows for this national motto to take the form of a plaque or student-made artwork.
The law also states that teachers and administrators in Kentucky government schools may read or post any of the following in a government school building or classroom:
1. The national motto
2. The national anthem
3. The pledge of allegiance
4. The preamble to the Kentucky Constitution
5. Portions of the Declaration of Independence
6. Portions of the Mayflower Compact
7. Portions of U.S. Supreme Court decisions
8. Portions of acts of the United States Congress
9. Portions of the writings, speeches, documents, and proclamations of the founding fathers and presidents of the United States
The law also prohibits content-based censorship of American history on the grounds of religious references in writings, documents, and records.
#3. Confirmation of Judges
We have put pressure on the U.S. Senate through petitions and phone calls to confirm conservative justices to major court positions, including to the U.S. Supreme Court. We are grateful to the Senate and President for the confirmation of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
#4. Hosting Speaking Events & Day of Prayer Rallies
We have hosted speaking events with Loren Spivack on pro-liberty economics, with Rich Pearson on safety in the city of Louisville, and with historian Bill Federer on the history of the USA and the history of Islam. For many years, we have successfully held meetings in Louisville, KY during the National Day of Prayer to pray for our nation.
