Tell Osceola County School Board official prayer is STILL wrong

The Osceola County School Board recently ended its unconstitutional practice of opening its meetings with prayer. However, it’s considering a proposal on Tuesday, March 8, to reinstate the prayers.

FFRF is asking you to prod the members to stand by their decision to end this unconstitutional practice. While allowing local religious leaders to deliver prayers has been found permissible in the context of legislative meetings, multiple courts have made it clear that prayers are impermissible as part of school board meetings.

Urge Osceola county school board members to keep official prayers out of school board meetings and keep school-sponsored religion out of schools.

Contact board members by their email and please feel free to use our talking points:

Talking Points

As an Osceola County community resident, I am concerned that the board is violating the Constitution by trying to continue instituting prayers at its meetings. I believe you made the right decision when ending the divisive practice. The board should stand by its decision and respect the rights of all Osceola County parents, students and community by not reinstating prayer at its meetings. Thank you.
