Join us for a reception, talk, and book signing with critically acclaimed author and constitutional attorney Andrew L. Seidel. Andrew will discuss his book American Crusade: How the Supreme Court is Weaponizing Religious Freedom, which examines key Supreme Court cases over the last decade to show how a hallowed legal protection, freedom of religion, has been turned into a tool to advance privilege and impose conservative Christianity on others.

Following his talk, Andrew will sign copies of the book, which will be available for sale at a discount. A cash bar and complimentary hot and cold appetizers will be available.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend as space is limited.

Andrew will also speak at a National Day of Reason event at the State Capitol on May 3. We hope to see you there as well (register here). But if you can’t make it to the Capitol, this reception is your chance to hear from one of the country’s foremost experts on Christian nationalism.

Our Day of Reason events are free but if you are able to make a donation to help cover speaker and food costs, it would be most appreciated! Contribute here and select “National Day of Reason” in the dropdown menu.

Andrew Seidel has been fighting to keep government and religion separate for more than a decade. He is currently vice president of strategic communications at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the largest organization fighting for that founding principle. He is also author of The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism Is Un-American.

Andrew previously served as a constitutional attorney and director of strategic response at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). He is a senior correspondent at Religion Dispatches and a prolific author of op-eds and scholarly articles. He organized and contributed to the groundbreaking report “Christian Nationalism at the January 6, 2021, Insurrection,” which was published by the Baptist Joint Committee and FFRF.

This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN and Minnesota Atheists.
