Stripping away sound bites to reveal how civil liberties affect real people every day.

By combining real stories and dynamic storytelling, this 10-part series creates a powerful emotional effect that will motivate viewers to action. Other episodes explore such topics as the Patriot Act, the Supreme Court, Racial Profiling and Dissent.

Religious Freedom

The right to practice religion, or no religion at all, is among the most fundamental of freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

In this episode, you'll meet Americans fighting for religious freedom: parents who challenged the teaching of "intelligent design" in the classroom; Billy Warsoldier, a Native American who was punished for adhering to his religious tradition while in prison; and Abbey Moler, a high school valedictorian who was asked to contribute some words of wisdom to her yearbook but was censored when she turned in a Bible verse.

This program is a crucial reminder of the founders' intent regarding religion - that it be a matter for individuals, not the government.
