Americans United’s Virtual National Advocacy Summit will take place online Sept. 14-15. The virtual event will feature live online sessions, an address by literary journalist Jeff Sharlet, a musical performance by Scarlett Rabe and other exciting sessions featuring expert speakers in the field of religious freedom and related social justice issues.

The Summit will bring together AU supporters from across the country to learn, advocate and build the movement for separation of religion and government and hear new strat­egies for defending the right to practice any faith or no faith at all, without harming others.

Participants will also have the ability to take part in online lobby visits with their members of Congress.
