Tomorrow in Manhasset, a panel of nationally renowned experts on religious liberty will discuss local and national issues involving the separation of church and state.

The panel discussion, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock in conjunction with the New York Civil Liberties Union’s Nassau County Chapter, will feature the Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and the Rev. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance. They have co-authored a book, First Freedom First: A Citizen's Guide to Protecting Religious Liberty and the Separation of Church and State, exploring the many areas in which politics and religion overlap and the consequences this has on all Americans.

Daniel Mach, director of litigation for the ACLU’s Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, will join Lynn and Gaddy on the panel.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock. Hofstra University professor and NYCLU Nassau County Chapter board member Andrea Libresco will moderate.
