Interfaith Coalition Panel NYC – Event Postponed
Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our guests and panelists, we will be postponing the March 26th Interfaith Coalition event until further notice. Please stay tuned for updated event information.
At Children’s Rights, we have become increasingly concerned about state and federal legislation and policy that expressly allow taxpayer-funded child welfare agencies to discriminate, based on their religious beliefs, against potential foster or adoptive parents—specifically LGBTQ couples. Some of the bills are so broad that they actually permit discrimination against children, and have been used to refuse licenses to Jewish and Catholic families. Using religion as justification, these laws deprive the most vulnerable children among us of the chance to be welcomed into the homes of safe and loving families.
To counter this harm, we have launched the Interfaith Coalition for Children’s Rights. The coalition brings faith leaders together to fight back against the use of religious freedom to enshrine a “license to discriminate.”
