Two churches, three schools, and a pregnancy center network filed suit in state court to challenge the Virginia Values Act, a law that forces the nonprofit ministries to abandon their core convictions in hiring and other polices or face fines up to $100,000 for each violation. The law, enacted July 1, 2020, compels churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.
