The Sword versus the Shield: A Discussion on Religious Freedom

Attendees will be advocating for and against diametrically opposed bills: one expands civil rights and rolls back religious privilege, while the other weaponizes religion to discriminate and roll back hard-won civil rights. Panelists will discuss the Do No Harm Act and the First Amendment Defense Act in the context of a larger discussion about how advocates for the separation of church and state can reclaim the phrase “religious freedom” from the religious right.
