From nuns seeking exemptions from health care mandates to a baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple, questions about religion and the Constitution are at the center of our national debate. Join us for a conversation with legal experts from differing perspectives, Elizabeth Clark, Robin Fretwell Wilson, Matt Sharp, and Tobias Barrington Wolff, as they explore what happens when religious liberty collides with anti-discrimination laws and regulations protecting LGBTQ and other minority groups. This program is presented in partnership with Interfaith Philadelphia and as part of their year-long civil dialogue series, A Year of Civil Conversations

This program is available for 1.0 substantive CLE credit. The National Constitution Center regularly applies for and receives CLE credit in PA, CA, NY, IL, TX, and DE for live events.
