Religious Freedom and LGBT Equality

Religious Freedom and LGBT Equality

Religious freedom and religious exemptions are hot news topics these days and they're deeply tied to U.S. history and landmark Supreme Court cases. These cases and related legislation allow us to study the history of religious freedom from a legal perspective. That's where this webinar comes in! We'll demonstrate classroom activities to engage students in understanding primary sources, recognizing patterns and trends across time, and evaluating how some religious freedom claims contribute to the backlash against the advancement of LGBT rights. Join us and special guest David Dinielli, deputy legal director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's LGBT Rights Project, for this important conversation.​
