Ethics and Public Policy Center
On Thursday, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a Washington, D.C. based “think tank” will be hosting a National Religious Freedom Conference, to be broadcast on C-Span. Church State Council executive director, Alan J. Reinach, Esq., will be a panelist for a discussion of religious freedom in the state legislatures. EPPC has initiated the development of state religious freedom coalitions, which offer a wonderful opportunity for grassroots participation by churches and schools, students, church members and clergy alike.
The theme of Reinach’s presention will focus on how the struggle to protect religious liberty has shifted from Congress and the Supreme Court to the states. He will highlight two important areas: State RFRA bills, i.e., Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, designed to protect free exercise rights broadly, and State WRFAs, Workplace Religious Freedom Acts, designed to insure religious accommodation in employment.
