Jessica Ahlquist: Freethinker Of The Year

Ahlquist v. Cranston (2012) was a case where the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island ruled that a "School Prayer" banner posted in Cranston High School West was a violation of the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution and ordered its removal. The suit was brought by Jessica Ahlquist with the assistance of the American Civil Liberties Union.
