Melissa Rogers - Faith in American Public Life — in conversation with Mike McCurry — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In her timely analysis of the role of religion in the public sphere, Rogers shows how important religious pluralism is to democracy and how vulnerable both are amid today’s surge of hostility to religious minorities. As executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships under Obama Rogers was charged with protecting the constitutional rights of all religious individuals and organizations, and here she describes the legal framework that has fostered the nation’s religious freedom and proposes ways policymakers and religious leaders can restore common ground and reinforce weakened constitutional bars on governmental establishment of religion. Roger will be in conversation with Mike McCurry, former White House press secretary and co-director of the Wesley Theological Seminary National Capital Semester for Seminarians.
