#JohnsonAmendment

Congress is poised to start working on tax reform this November. The effort may include legislation that would repeal a provision of the tax code known as the Johnson Amendment that protects the integrity of tax-exempt organizations, including houses of worship, by ensuring they do not endorse or oppose political candidates.

The Johnson Amendment, which is more than six decades old, was designed to protect the independence of houses of worship and non-profit organizations. Most Americans don’t want these organizations divided by elections or turned into tools of political candidates and campaigns. 

Some who are seeking political power want to weaken the Johnson Amendment so that they can pressure houses of worship and charities for endorsements. That's why it is vital that we continue to push back against attacks on the Johnson Amendment.

Join us in a digital rally on October 30 at 1 PM EST to send a clear message to Congress: Protect the Johnson Amendment.
