What’s happening on campus?

This series shows how religious freedom law and policies have been weaponized and how chaplains can be agents of resistance.
Think Like a Lawyer, Act Like a Chaplain was first presented as a four-hour workshop in 2019 at the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC) annual conference. The purpose of this online, four-part series is to offer spiritual care professionals and students an opportunity to look at how weaponizing religious freedom may negatively impact our abilities to offer spiritual care in health care settings, as well as ways to resist discrimination through hate-proofing.
