Stand Up Rallies TODAY in 164 U.S. Cities

Posted by John Jansen (June 8, 2012 at 6:00 am)

Rally CitiesThe list of cities taking part in today’s Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally now stands at 164—far surpassing the 145 cities that participated in the first Stand Up Rally on March 23.

The number of cities on board for today’s Nationwide Rally shows that the massive turnout seen at that first Rally on March 23 was hardly a one-time phenomenon.

Opposition among the American people to the HHS Mandate’s assault on religious freedom is intense—and getting stronger!

From Augusta, Maine to Miami, Florida to Fairbanks, Alaska to Honolulu, Hawaii the American people are sending a message that we will not stand idly by while the federal government forces all employer health plans to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of any moral or religious objections.

Later tonight, you don’t want to find yourself saying, “I wish I had gone to the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally.”

Don’t be that guy. Be there!

Augusta Rally—Theme Song—God Bless the USA

Posted by Janet Le Blanc (June 5, 2012 at 11:19 am)

The theme song for the Stand Up of Religious Freedom Rally in Augusta, Maine is God Bless the USA.   This song address how many of us feel about the United States.   Freedom was paid for with the blood of many—a sacrifice, so freedom will stand.

The words, “I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today,” embraces the call every United States citizen, who cares about freedom has.

The purpose of the Religious Freedom Rally is to Stand Up and defend the rights given to us in the U.S. Constitution.

The HHS mandate attacks what most Americans value—freedom. [Continue reading ...]

Stand Up Rally Signs Here, There, and Everywhere

Posted by John Jansen (May 31, 2012 at 5:57 pm)

Stand Up Rally signsOne of the great things about the media coverage of the March 23 Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally was seeing the same signs held by rally participants nationwide.

For that rally, we shipped 4,000 signs to rally captains in well over 100 cities, because we knew the signs were essential to keeping our message simple and conveying it in an unmistakably clear way: We are for religious freedom, and we are against the HHS Mandate.

This time around, we’ve upped the ante considerably. In preparation for the June 8 Stand Up Rally, we had 30,000 signs printed.

Stand Up Rally signsWe started shipping signs last week, and as new cities have come on board just in the past few days, we’ve been packing them up and shipping them out as fast as we can.

So if you’re wondering, “Where can I get a sign?” we have an answer: At the Stand Up Rally location nearest you on Friday, June 8.

Over 140 Cities Rally against Obama’s HHS Mandate

Posted by John Jansen (March 22, 2012 at 10:25 am)

Rally Locations MapWhen we first announced that the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom would be held on Friday, March 23rd, 30 cities signed on immediately.

That number quickly grew to 60. Then 80.

Then it topped 100. Then it grew to 120, then earlier this week went up to 130, and now the number stands at over 140!

One of the newest sites, added just yesterday, is Boston, where a Rally will be held in Boston Common—the oldest park in the United States.

Earlier plans to hold a Rally there never materialized, so we were thrilled when a new Rally Captain stepped forward this week and volunteered to take on the significant legwork involved at this late day to make sure a Rally would be held in this historic American city.

Other Rally sites added just in the past few days include St. Louis, Missouri, Davenport, Iowa, Redding, California, and—wait for it—Las Vegas!

The complete list of Rally locations is here.

You don’t want to miss this opportunity to be a part of history—tomorrow, Friday, March 23, at noon, at a city near you. Be there!
