Religious Freedom Day
Each year the President declares January 16th to be Religious Freedom Day. All Americans are asked to "observe this day through appropriate events and activities in homes, schools, and places of worship"
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 16, 2017, as Religious Freedom Day. I call on all Americans to commemorate this day with events and activities that teach us about this critical foundation of our Nation's liberty, and that show us how we can protect it for future generations at home and around the world.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.
National Religious Freedom Day took place first on January 16th 1786, On this date the Virginia General Assembly adopted the statue of Thomas Jefferson's. Later an establishment clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution which led to freedom of religion for all Americans.
