The American Civil Liberties Union is itching to file a lawsuit over a new Kentucky state law requiring public schools to prominently display the “In God We Trust” motto.
The ACLU claims the motto “has the appearance of endorsing religion” and its communications director, Amber Duke, has asked parents and students who feel their rights are being violated by the language to contact the organization.
Meanwhile, schools across the state are working to fulfill the new state law. Some are planning to put up plaques while others will use artwork in common areas, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Gov. Matt Bevin signed the law requiring schools to display the “In God We Trust” motto on March 26, 2019. Locations of the motto can be displayed in school entryways, cafeterias or common areas.
