Christian iconography removed from Calif. school (April 2024)

FFRF has ensured that students at a California school will no longer be exposed to a Latin cross during class sessions.

A Chino Valley community member reported a Latin cross on display in the Chino Valley Adult School next to a poster of the Pledge of Allegiance.

FFRF Staff Attorney Chris Line wrote to legal representation for the district regarding the violation. William A. Diedrich, an attorney from Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, responded on behalf of the district. “Without addressing the legality of the display, nor acknowledging that a constitutional violation has occurred, the district has requested the Latin cross to be removed and the employee has complied,” he wrote.
