St. Paul Chapter January Meetup

What will be the key legislative battles over separation of church and state in the upcoming year?  Dave Pacheco, the president of the Minnesota Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, will provide both a Minnesota and national perspective.  Arguments for all sides will be considered on religious exemptions to hiring and firing discrimination laws, employer-provided insurance requirements of the Affordable Care Act and anti-bullying laws.

David Pacheco is the President and one of the founding board members of the Minnesota chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.  He has worked with groups in California and Minnesota on religious freedom issues, including training work on the 2012 MN United campaign to prevent marriage restriction.  During the day, David works as an IT Enterprise Architect, designing secure and integrated computing systems for media companies.

A buffet breakfast is available for $12.  All other attendees pay $3, which includes coffee.  Please RSVP by Thursday, January 2 so that we can schedule a room and make adequate seating arrangements.

    What a great topic and discussion. I only wish the room was warmer when we arrived, but it did warm up nicely.

    Will anti-bullying laws protect and help the bullied and punish the bullyers? OR will they protect and help the bullied AND acknowledge that bullies (and sometimes their parents) need some concentrated help, too, and provide for it?
