How the Movement Started

– The Peaceably Gather Sunday movement derives its name from the 1st Amendment of the Constitution stating, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
– The Peaceably Gather Campaign comes as a response to local elected leaders across the country unconstitutionally targeting any attempt of places of worship to safely gather their members.
– Over 200 churches opened their doors on Sunday, May 17th and participated in the Peaceably Gather campaign and thousands are now joining
– Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO and Chief Counsel for First Liberty, has committed that their team will provide legal defense for any church across the country that has its First Amendment rights violated.
– First Liberty has represented numerous churches across the country during the pandemic and has won every case, including a Federal statewide injunction opening all churches across KY for safe in-person services
