Mayor Forced to Disclaim “Day of Prayer” (November 21, 1993)


In November 1993, the Freedom From Religion Foundation Denver chapter, with the national organization, successfully went to court to enjoin the Denver mayor’s office from cosponsoring a National Day of Prayer against Violence on Dec. 5, 1993. The Court enjoined the mayor from “any further endorsement, promotion, sponsorship or support of the Day of Prayer.”
