Forum: Religious Freedom and Reproductive Justice

The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado (TIA-CO) invites you to attend an upcoming public policy forum titled, “Religious Freedom and Reproductive Justice.” The forum will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. Thurs., May 29 at Capitol Heights Presbyterian Church, 1100 Fillmore St. in Denver.

The forum will look at the covert campaign to redefine religious freedom in the United States and the implications this effort has on access to reproductive health care and religious freedom for all Americans. In particular, the forum will consider the two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court – the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga cases – dealing with the Affordable Care Act and access to contraception. Time will be given for audience questions.

Panelists will include:

Rev. Nina Churchman, Episcopal Priest
John Kane, retired professor, Regis University
Laura Reinsch, Political and Organizing Director, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado
Mark Silverstein, Legal Director, American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado
