Sessions announces new ‘religious liberty task force’

In a speech at the Department of Justice’s Religious Liberty Summit in Washington, Sessions said the goal of the task force will be protecting religious groups from persecution.

“The task force will help the department fully implement our religious liberty guidance by ensuring that all Justice Department components are upholding that guidance in the cases they bring and defend, the arguments they make in court, the policies and regulations they adopt and how we conduct our operations,” Sessions said. “That includes making sure that our employees know their duties to accommodate people of faith.”
