What's At Stake -- Separation of Religion and State Today

Wednesday, October 03, 2018 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Building 2, 190
182 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

From efforts to drop the Johnson Amendment, to FEMA policy changes benefiting houses of worship, to SCOTUS drift jeopardizing women's bodily autonomy, the past few years have presented numerous challenges to American secular governance, threatening to stall or reverse much of the progress made by the historical struggle for separation of religion and state in the US. We at the Secular Society of MIT have brought together representatives from three organizations that have long been standing guard over and advancing secular civil liberties and rights for Americans, to take stock of the situation, and to discuss the question of where to go from here.

Members of the panel:

Ronal Madnick
President
Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Massachusetts Chapter

Carol Rose
Executive Director
American Civil Liberties Union, Massachusetts Chapter

Zachary Bos
Co-Chair
Secular Coalition for America, Massachusetts Chapter

WHEN: Wednesday, OCT/03, 7pm
WHERE: 2-190 (1st Floor, 182 Memorial Drive, https://whereis.mit.edu/?go=2)
Free entry. Free light refreshments.
The event will be photographed and recorded.
