BYU will host a conference designed to help citizens better understand religious freedom, including what’s behind the current headlines and what individuals can do to protect this core First Amendment right. The BYU Religious Freedom Annual Review, scheduled for Thursday-Friday, July 7-8, at the BYU Conference Center in Provo, Utah, will bring together some of the leading thinkers on this topic.
Elder Lance B. Wickman, general counsel for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and an emeritus General Authority Seventy, and Utah Valley University President Matthew S. Holland will be among the speakers at this year's conference.
Hosted by the BYU International Center for Law and Religion Studies at the J. Reuben Clark Law School, this two-day conference is open to the public and will include sessions and workshops focusing on political trends and religious freedom, understanding media coverage of religion, protecting religion in the workplace and the role of interfaith cooperation in protecting religious freedom.
