The Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act has put Indiana in the national spotlight. People on both sides feel that there has been an affront to deeply held personal convictions. Some believe that the legislation provides a “license to discriminate,” especially against members of the LGBTQ community, while supporters argue that the legislation protects everyone’s religious freedoms equally. This is something that merits serious conversation, and the Prindle Institute will be hosting a lunch and discussion in the UB Ballroom this Friday, April 3 at 11:30 am. For more information on the controversy surrounding the bill, see our post here. 

Andy Cullison, Director of the Prindle Institute, will deliver a very brief presentation of the issues surrounding the recent passage of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Groups will have an opportunity to discuss the issues raised at their tables. There will also be some time to come together for a brief Q&A and a sharing of thoughts that came out of the group discussions.

Box lunches from Bon Appetit will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
