The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute invites you to attend our January webinar, Religious Studies and Government: Promising Venues for Public Scholarship. We will discuss how scholars of religion can engage local, state, and federal governments to raise the visibility of their work. We are pleased to host co-presenters Thomas Bowen, director of the Mayor's Office of Religious Affairs (District of Columbia); Rebecca Linder Blachley, director of the Office of Government Relations of the Episcopal Church; and Usra Ghazi, director of policy and programs for America Indivisible.

This webinar is hosted by the Public Scholars Project, a joint initiative of the Public Understanding of Religion Committee of the American Academy of Religion and the Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute. The Public Scholars Project created this webinar series to help scholars hone their skills at communicating with a variety of publics.
