About Project Blitz


Project Blitz is a campaign by Christian Nationalists to attack equality and distort religious freedom. 

Project Blitz is a coordinated effort by Christian Nationalists to shape state law using a distorted definition of “religious freedom” to undermine LGBTQ equality, attack access to reproductive healthcare, and push a false narrative that the United States was founded as a Christian nation.

In the 2018 alone, more than 70 Project Blitz-related bills—including measures that attack LGBTQ people, undermine access to reproductive healthcare, and attempt to inject religion into public schools—were introduced in state legislatures across the nation.

BlitzWatch is a campaign by a broad coalition of national civil rights and religious freedom organizations committed to protecting equality for all Americans to monitor, track, and defeat attempts by Christian Nationalists to implement their distorted view of religious freedom.

This is just the latest attempt by religious extremists to use the coercive powers of government to secure a privileged position in society for their version of Christianity.
