Separation of Church and State and Racial Justice: a Critical Nexus

Registration is not Required
Speaker - Rachel Laser, is the first female and non-Christian president in Americans United for Separation of Church and State's 74-year history. In her position at Americans United, Rachel oversees the organization’s work to protect freedom of conscience for all and ensure religion is not used to justify discrimination. Prior to coming to AU, Rachel worked as an educator on white privilege and racism and held positions as deputy director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, director of the Culture Program at Third Way, and senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC).

Rachel will discuss our country’s longstanding relationship between religious freedom and racism, religious freedom’s misuse to advance a white Christian nationalist agenda, and what we can do to stop the abuse of an ideal that should make us all more, and not less, free.
