January 16 Is Religious Freedom Day

January 16 is Religious Freedom Day-- celebrating the anniversary of the passage in 1786 of the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom. Each year since 1993 the President has issued a proclamation marking the day. Presumably this year's Proclamation will be posted by the White House today. Gov. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska also issued a Proclamation (full text) recognizing the day.

UPDATE: Here is President Trump's Proclamation on Religious Freedom Day, 2020.
