About FOR SA

Freedom of Religion South Africa (FOR SA) is a non-profit, legal advocacy organisation dedicated to upholding the rights to religious freedom conferred by the South African Constitution, including parental rights and the autonomy of religious organisations to determine their own doctrines and regulate their own internal affairs free from interference by the State or anyone else.

We have a single-minded and unwavering commitment to ensure that we continue to live in a nation where all people remain free to celebrate, speak about and live out their religious convictions, beliefs and opinions.
