Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. The ERLC is dedicated to engaging the culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ and speaking to issues in the public square for the protection of religious liberty and human flourishing.

Why We Invested

In response to the rise of hate speech and behavior and in the public profile of white supremacists in the United States, courageous faith leaders stepped up to push back against anti-democratic forces in a powerful way. On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention (ERLC) hosted a conference on racial unity.

Democracy Fund is supporting the work of the ERLC to bring together Americans from around the country to discuss how to create healing and improve our democracy.
