Constitution Day 2018

Tolerance Means Dialogue: "Religious Liberty and the Culture War Over LGBT Rights:
Can University Students Make a Difference?"

Monday, September 17, 2018
7 p.m.
Lincoln Hall
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Featuring Dialogue Catalysts:

Robin Fretwell Wilson
Roger and Stephany Joslin Professor of Law, University of Illinois, and Director of the Tolerance Means Dialogues

Professor Wilson regularly advises legislators seeking to balance religious freedom and LGBT non-discrimination protections. She played an integral role in passing Utah’s landmark religious freedom and non-discrimination compromise law.

Shannon Minter
Legal Director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights
Mr. Minter, a transgender man, was lead counsel for same-sex couples in the landmark California marriage equality case, represented married same-sex couples from Tennessee in Obergefell v. Hodges, and in 2011, Minter was also NCLR’s Lead Attorney in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez.

Student winners of the Tolerance Scholarship


Moderated by:

Gretchen Winter
Executive Director of the Center for Professional Responsibility in Business and Society at the Gies College of Business
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

When values like non-discrimination interact with faith, many see friction and no solutions. We see a better way: talking to each other. The Tolerance Means Dialogues are about working together to move forward, not about relitigating the past. The Dialogue draws on your insights about more constructive ways to live together with our differences.

Event is free, and open to the public.
No tickets required.
