Different Faiths, Same Cause: Protecting Religious Liberty in the U.S.

In this Zephyr Salon, Prof. Jim Sonne will explore why US law protects religious liberty and how it determines the limits of religious accommodations in the face of competing interests.

Description

Can employers deny jobs to an applicant who requests a religious accommodation? Should religion factor into immigration policy? Do death row inmates have a right to accompaniment by a chaplain of their faith? Lawmakers, employers and institutions have posed new challenges to religious freedom in recent years. Under the direction of Professor Jim Sonne, the Stanford Religious Liberty Clinic is building bridges across faiths to help promote a culture of religious flourishing.

 

In this salon-style conversation, we asked Prof Sonne about his bridge-building work, why US law protects religious liberty, how it determines the limits of religious accommodations in the face of competing interests, and related questions our attendees bring to the discussion.
