When Islam is Not a Religion

Inside America’s Fight for Religious Freedom

This event will discuss how faith in America is being secularized and politicized, and the repercussions this has on debates about religious freedom and diversity. Panelists will examine the state of religious freedom in the U.S. through the prism of attacks on the constitutional rights of American Muslims with a view that attacks on the religious liberty of one group has implications for everyone. At a time when the legitimacy of a particular faith is being questioned, this will be a conversation that will advocate for all faiths.

Immediately following the panel discussion, Asma Uddin will sign copies of her book.
