Religious Freedoms: Community Conversation (LDS Church) – March 2017
AMPAC VPs Nakita Valerio and Mustafa Farooq participated in Religious Freedoms: A Community Conversation, hosted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Speakers throughout the day shared what religious freedoms mean to their tradition and how we can support one another in protecting them. It was a wonderful afternoon of sharing and meeting many new friends. (Photos courtesy of the Catholic Archdiocese)
