For over 35 years, Gammon & Grange, P.C. has represented churches and religious organizations and defended their constitutional right to religious freedom and expression.
Central to those constitutional rights is a religious organization's religious identity. The purposes for which it was established, the activities it engages in, and the reasons for both make up an organization's identity. An important part of maintaining a religious identity is making certain that the ministry clearly and consistently articulates how faith permeates its activities. It should be evident from its documents and practices that religious faith is at the heart of its mission and services. How well a religious organization articulates and protects its religious identity may determine its ability to withstand challenges and to preserve its rights to maintain the core values that empower its service to others.
The attorneys in this practice group are experienced in addressing issues affecting religious liberty. Through Religious Identity Audits, the attorneys at Gammon & Grange, P.C. review religious organization's documents and have discussions with key personnel to determine how the organization can improve the articulation of its religious identity and establish policies and practices that are consistent with it.
Attorneys in the Religious Liberties Practice are available to speak to your place of worship or religious organization on these important concerns and to discuss how Gammon & Grange, P.C. can assist in preserving and protecting churches' and religious organizations' constitutional rights.
