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.
So far this year, more than 75 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.
The BlitzWatch coalition has a number of subject matter experts in the areas of public policy, constitutional law, and religious freedom as well as elected officials who are able to speak on the record about the threat posed by Project Blitz.
If you would like to speak with one of our coalition members or experts, please reach out to our media contact by email or telephone at (908) 276-7300 x305.
