The Religious Freedom Education Project at the Newseum
invites you to a special event:
Queer, Atheist and Interfaith Activist:
A dialogue with the improbable Chris Stedman
Thursday, May 23, 7 p.m. | Knight Conference Center, Newseum

Chris Stedman

At a time when incendiary rhetoric and personal attacks characterize culture war debates, Chris Stedman works to build bridges across some of our deepest differences. How does a self-described “queer atheist” find common ground between faith communities and the nonreligious, between gay and straight?

Find out on May 23 when Charles Haynes, director of the Religious Freedom Education Project, interviews Stedman about his efforts to promote understanding, religious liberty, compassion and pluralism in our crowded and often hostile public square.

Chris Stedman serves as the Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University and is the author of “Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious.”

Join us after the discussion for a reception and book signing. The event is free, but space is limited. To reserve a seat, RSVP to Ashlie Hampton at ahampton@newseum.org
