Rachel K. Laser, an attorney with extensive experience in nonprofit advocacy, is the new President and CEO of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. She will speak about “Church-State Separation in the Trump Era: Where We Are and Where We’re Going.”
During her public policy career in Washington, Laser has worked for the National Women’s Law Center, Third Way and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. She also serves on the board of NARAL.
Laser earned an undergraduate degree in history and literature from Harvard University in 1991 and a law degree from the University of Chicago Law School in 1995.
Laser is the first woman and the first Jewish person to head the 71-year religious liberty watchdog group based in Washington, DC. She succeeded the Rev. Barry Lynn in February of this year.
Our program will also include:
Chapter President and AU National Trustee Ron Madnick will report on an important church/state case that reached the Massachusetts Supreme Court this year. Ron will also talk about the Do No Harm Act that was introduced by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, which would amend the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 to ensure religious freedom is not used to discriminate.
Nominations are being solicited for the Steering Committee of the Massachusetts Chapter. All members of AU living in Massachusetts are eligible to serve.
If you are interested in serving on the Committee, please email Ron Madnick. Nominations must be received by Sept. 24. On Sept. 29, we will elect a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and up to 16 additional Board members.
