On Thursday, Oct. 4, thousands of students will participate in “Bring Your Bible to School Day,” sponsored by our friends at Focus on the Family. Not only have these students courageously committed to bringing their Bibles to school and sharing their faith with their fellow students, but they are also exercising their right to religious freedom.

But the truth is that students have a right to freely live out their faith – even at school – and Alliance Defending Freedom stands ready to defend that right.
God works through these students when they are brave enough to stand up for Him at school, and students across the country have noticed God at work through this event:
