Join Chesterton House, the Christian Legal Society, the Cornell Claritas, and Asian-American InterVarsity for a conversation with John Inazu, an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. His scholarship focuses on the First Amendment freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion, and related issues of political and legal theory. John’s first book, Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly, was published by Yale University Press in 2012. He has written broadly for mainstream audiences in publications including USA Today, CNN, The Hedgehog Review, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington PostClick here to learn more about the concepts behind Confident Pluralism in John’s own words.

“Confident Pluralism allows genuine difference to coexist without suppressing or minimizing our firmly held convictions.  We can embrace pluralism precisely because we are confident in our own beliefs.  But doing so requires two related actions: strengthening First Amendment freedoms and accepting greater personal responsibility in exercising those freedoms.”- John Inazu
