- Special Topic: Talk on "Church Electioneering Past and Present, Fact and Fiction" by Don Leadroot, retired attorney who practiced law in Oregon and Federal Court. This presentation will cover the historical and policy background of church electioneering, the major court cases, and the arguments that may shape future law. The IRS response to violations and tax guidelines will be examined. Don will provide handouts, and expects his presentation to last 30-45 minutes.
This Meetup is sponsored by the Columbia Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. It is free and open to everyone. We invite you to come, to learn and to share your ideas.
When you arrive, you may order food or drinks but there is no requirement that you do so. Then there is usually time for informal discussion with new friends.
