About the event
The Equality Act protects LGBTQ rights but not religious freedoms. Adding thoughtful, crucial amendments will ensure that both the LGBTQ community and people and institutions of all faiths are protected.
Join APJ for a virtual conversation: Faith-Based Work & LGBTQ Rights: How to have Fairness for All with Stanley Carlson-Thies from the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance at the Center for Public Justice, Art Hooker from APJ, and Justin Giboney from the (&)Campaign. Together they will discuss the adverse implications of the Equality Act on faith-based organizations, particularly those who serve the African-American community, and offer ways the Senate can craft amendments that protect all citizens and institutions.
This conversation will be followed by a training session that will help YOU to advocate for those amendments.
