Inclusive Justice Workshop - Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) - Shield or Sword?

On May 15, 2016, Unity of Blue Water hosted this program designed to focus faith leaders and people of faith on the irreparable harm caused to LGBT individuals and families, as well as other minorities, when overly broad religious exemptions are put in place. The objective was to have conversations with others about religious exemptions, as well as how to engage with community leaders about these harms. The event was facilitated by Judith Lewis for Inclusive Justice - an interfaith movement.

UBW's stand: This law is a violation of human and civil rights that we want to enlighten people about, and move them into action.
