The threat of Christian nationalism is not new. But, this movement, which promotes the idea that to be a real American you must be Christian, is dangerously intensifying. It’s not only behind the push to advance a revisionist historical view of the United States and promote government-sponsored religious exercise; it also has inspired religious hate crimes, arson and deadly attacks on houses of worship.
How can we take a stand against this dangerous political ideology? What are the effective ways we can make a difference? Join us for an issue briefing and advocacy training on Sunday, November 17, as we welcome leaders from BJC in Washington, D.C., to discuss the threat Christian nationalism poses to religious freedom for all.
BJC Executive Director Amanda Tyler and Associate Director of Mobilization Christine Browder will talk about the foundations of religious liberty in our country, how we can lead conversation about dangers of Christian nationalism, and ways we can raise our voice to make an impact. Monday morning, November 18, you’ll be able to put these skills in action as you visit the offices of your elected officials together. The session is open to anyone who wants to be a more empowered advocate on church-state issues.
Sunday, November 17, Second Baptist Church, 222 E. 8th Street from 2:00p.m. – 5:00p.m.
