SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Alliance Defense Fund has released a new guide for Christian students to educate them on their First Amendment rights of free speech and religious expression on public school campuses.


"Christian students do not abandon their First Amendment rights at the schoolhouse gate," said ADF President, CEO, and General Counsel Alan Sears.  "For years, many schools have bowed to the fear, disinformation, and intimidation of the ACLU and its allies when it comes to religious speech and expression on campus.  This guide dispels many of the myths that have been used to bully school officials to silence Christian students, and instructs on the true meaning of the First Amendment when it comes to religious expression and activity."


The 32-page guide, "Knowing Your Rights," provides information on equal access for religious clubs to use campus facilities, what religious clubs can do on campus (including university campuses), and the rights of teachers and administrators to participate in religious expression.


"It's our hope that this guide will become a valuable tool to equip Christian students and school administrators with the truth regarding religious expression on campus," Sears said.


Copies of the guide are available at www.telladf.org/involved/products or by calling 1-877-TELL-ADF.
