Declare Your Political Independence

We're tired of the Far Right hijacking Christian faith and images. Sign the petition and make this your own political independence day.

We are tired of the misrepresentation and misuse of religion and faith in our nation’s politics and public debate.

Today, we declare our political independence as progressive Christians.

We will expose the hypocrisy of politicians who wrap themselves in the cloak of Christianity while advocating for policies that hurt, divide and impoverish millions of Americans.
