Tribute to Anne Nicol Gaylor


My mother and I and a Milwaukee gentlemen first founded the Freedom From Religion Foundation as a regional group when I was a college student in 1976. The impetus for the group was our somehow becoming aware they were opening county board meetings with prayer.

We went down to ask them to stop this unconstitutional practice, and thought we would sound more powerful if we called ourselves a group. So we made up a name–and the rest is history!
