On Saturday, October 16th, at 2:00 PM Orange County AU will host Dean Erwin Chemerinsky speaking on "The Supreme Court and the Future of Church-State Separation."
One of Dean Chemerinsky's longstanding causes has been the separation of church and state. He represented plaintiffs who sought to remove granite Ten Commandments from the Texas State Capitol. He supports abortion rights and was on the board of the Southern California American Civil Liberties Union for a decade.
He has also favored removing the words "under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. Chemerinsky opposed Prop. 8 and said allowing it to pass would be an "incalculable blow to progress."
