The (Weakening) Wall of Separation Between Church and State

Clay Jenkinson


Thanks to misunderstandings of the Constitution of the United Sates and the First Amendment, an increasing number of Americans believe that religion has a rightful and essential place in the public square. Clay will provide a brief historical background to the doctrine of Separation, and discuss the threat to this essential American freedom.


Clay Jenkinson is the Theodore Roosevelt Center Scholar at DSC and Distinguished Scholar of Humanities at BSC.

Family Matters—Who Decides?

Becky Podol Matthews


Our 2nd Unitarian Universalist principle calls us to honor justice, equity and compassion in human relations. Becky Podol Matthews will reflect on how Measure 1 (on the November ballot) could have compromised her family's options and decisions in the midst of very difficult and personal circumstances.


Becky Matthews is currently on the Board of Directors for the ND Women's Network, active with ND Against Measure 1.
