The Remaking of the Courts (And Why You Should Care)
10/01/2020 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. CT
Now that the president has named Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the Senate vows to waste no time in confirming her, the Trump administration's remaking of the courts is of even greater concern for supporters of religious freedom. The separation of religion and government is the linchpin of religious freedom for all, but President Trump and many of his judicial nominees have shown little respect for this fundamental American value.
In "The Remaking of the Courts (and Why You Should Care)," the panel looks at how the changing courts could result in a government that permits religion to dictate public policy and authorizes discrimination against minorities. They also outline several cases involving church-state matters that could be impacted by these changes.
We're showing a recording of this workshop, which was presented during Americans United's National Advocacy Summit two weeks ago. The panelists won't be available for live Q & A, but you'll be able to question and interact with AU Houston chapter leaders and others watching with us.
