October 2018 – In April, the state of Tennessee passed a law requiring that the national motto be displayed in a prominent place within schools. The law defines “prominent place” as a “school entryway, cafeteria, or common area where students are likely to see the national motto.”

In March 2001, Mississippi became the first state to require the national motto “In God We Trust” be posted in public school classrooms, cafeterias, and auditoriums. AFA president Don Wildmon urged AFA supporters to contact their congressmen and governors to pass similar laws.
