Uniting America--Matters of Faith: Religion in American Public Life

The second Assembly in the Uniting America series, convened in March 2000.  The participants discussed how we can--and why we should--hear religious voices in the public square, and tried to create a bridge between public life and religion. The group reaffirmed its committment to the inalienable right of religious freedom based upon the worth and dignity of each human being, and articulated a call for all citizens with religious convictions to engage in civic life.
