Join us virtually for the next program in the Controversy/History series! We will be hosting a discussion on the topic “Free to Believe – Religious Freedom Today” on January 4th from 5:30- 7:00 p.m. on Zoom.
235 years ago, the state of Virginia passed the VA statute of Religious Freedom and Thomas Jefferson proclaimed the mind free. Join us to explore how our understanding of our freedom of conscience has evolved in the years since and how it continues to be challenged today. Religious Freedom Day is January 16, 2022. This day commemorates the Virginia General Assembly’s adoption of the Virginia statute for religious freedom, penned by Thomas Jefferson in 1786.
Panelists include Imam Amarr Amonette (Islamic Center of Virginia), Kim Bobo (Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy) and Chris Burton (Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities).
