On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. in the National Press Club’s Zenger Room in Washington, D.C., there will be a unique three-way conversation between a career national journalist and two civil liberty attorneys – one a Muslim, the other an Evangelical Christian. Civil liberties attorney and General Counsel for NRB, Craig Parshall, will be launching the discussion with Muslim religious rights attorney and scholar Asma Uddin, the author of the recently released When Islam Is Not a Religion, joined by national journalist and media veteran Steven Waldman, whose most recent book is Sacred Liberty – America’s Long, Bloody, and Ongoing Struggle for Religious Freedom. Parshall calls this event “a unique window into the blunt, controversial questions that most divide America’s religious communities when it comes to civil rights and public responsibilities, as well as an exploration into what could also unite us.”Posted on September 4, 2019

According to a recent survey by technology research group Loup Ventures, 51% of Americans believe that more should be done to protect free speech on internet platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), which launched its John Milton Project for Free Speech eight years ago to address that very issue, agrees. But the head of NRB’s project also believes the real question is how those free expression protections can be achieved, especially as censorship is expanding.Posted on June 3, 2019
