First Freedom Center

Virginia’s Statute for Religious Freedom, written by Thomas Jefferson, preceded the First Amendment of the Constitution.
And while the country and its leaders sometimes fight over the application of the First Amendment, Virginia leaders say they’re providing a way for citizens and noncitizens alike to embrace its true meaning—in the very spot where Jefferson’s statute passed.
Virginia Public Radio’s Tommie McNeil reports on the groundbreaking for the First Freedom Center in Richmond, which will be a monument to Jefferson’s work and a lot more.
