From stump speeches to Supreme Court decisions to state legislation to local protests, the subject of religious freedom has become especially potent in recent political debates and social movements. What is religious freedom and how did it become such a lightning rod in modern U.S. legal debates? Are there inherent tensions between religious freedom and the broader spectrum of civil rights? Bring your questions about recent events and historical trends to this panel discussion moderated by Rachel McBride Lindsey and Ronit Stahl, Postdoctoral Research Associates with the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University in St. Louis.

Panelists include Dr. Robert P. Jones, CEO of Public Religion Research Institute; Prof. Sarah Barringer Gordon, University of Pennsylvania Law School; Prof. John Inazu, Washington University School of Law; and Tiffany Stanley, Managing Editor, Religion & Politics.

Cosponsored with the Law, Identity, and Culture Initiative at Washington University Law School.

Please join us for a reception with our panelists immediately following the discussion.

This event is free and open to all.
