Judge Vance Day

Of Counsel, The James Madison Center for Free Speech. 


Vance Day is a modern-day profile in courage who strongly believes in helping to raise a generation of leaders equipped to address an ever-changing world. Few have had their personal convictions more sorely tested or triumphed over the politics of religious persecution and personal destruction like Judge Day.

A descendant of Oregon Trail pioneers, he was born and raised in the Willamette Valley. He attained the rank of Eagle Scout and went

on to graduate magna cum laude from Warner Pacific University in 1984. Vance studied Biblical Historiography at the Institute of Holy Land Studies in Jerusalem and Public Policy at Regent University before earning his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Willamette University College of Law in 1991.  Vance is an accomplished trial lawyer and a member of the Oregon State Bar, and numerous other courts including the United States Supreme Court. He has tried over 300 bench and jury trials.  


Vance served the State of Oregon for nearly four years as the Chairman of the Oregon Republican Party. He has lectured on military history and leadership theory at The White House, before members of Congress, the Heritage Foundation, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and numerous organizations and educational institutions in North America and Europe. 


In September 2011 Mr. Day was appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber to serve as a Circuit Court Judge in Oregon’s Third Judicial District. Judge Day was elected to a full six-year term in November of 2012.


The primary function of a judge is to preside over cases, but judges are also permitted, at their discretion, to officiate weddings. In 2014 Judge Day, based on his Christian convictions, quitely recused himself from marrying same-sex couples—a decision that in no way prevented same-sex couples from getting married. As a result, he became the focus of a sustained, vicious attack that sought to end his career, take away his license to practice law, strip him of his possessions, ruin his reputation, and even have him imprisoned. Yet Vance maintained his innocence and kept his promise to his faith, to his family, and to the constitution. In October 2018, the State’s criminal case was dismissed, and the house of cards constructed against Vance collapsed from the weight of its own preposterousness. 


In December of 2018, Judge Day joined the leadership team at Promise Keepers as Chief Operating Officer.  In June of 2019, Day was elevated by the Board of Directors to the position of President.  He also served as a Member of the Board of Directors and as Promise Keepers General Counsel through mid-April of 2021, returning to Oregon to build a home for his family.  He currently serves as Of Counsel to The James Madison Center for Free Speech, a 501C(3) educational foundation.  Judge Day is head of the Oregon Free Speech Initiative and travels his home state educating communities on inalienable rights and how to productively engage in restoring our republic.
