Tell your senators to preserve Johnson Amendment

The U.S. House passed a bill that would defund all enforcement of the Johnson Amendment, which keeps 501(c)(3)s, including churches, from endorsing political candidates. This would, in turn, allow churches to become unaccountable, unregulated super PACs through which dark political money will flow.

We need once again to put the heat on lawmakers to oppose this provision while it’s still in its early stages. The new budget will need support from at least nine Senate Democrats, who have opposed this in the past, but they need to hear from you. Please contact your U.S. senators today and ask them to protect the Johnson Amendment and fund its enforcement.
