posted at 2:01 pm on February 27, 2013 by Ed Morrissey
If you want to let the federal government know how you see the state of religious freedom in the US, now’s your chance. The Corner’s Peter Kirsanow alerts us to the open-comment period before and after a public hearing on March 22nd, and the opportunity to attend the hearing in person:
The U.S.Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public hearing on recent developments involving the intersection of religious freedom and enforcement of anti-discrimination laws. The hearing will take place on Friday, March 22, 2013, at 9:30 a.m. EST at the Commission’s headquarters located at 1331 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington, D.C.
The witnesses — litigants, scholars, and other experts – will address, among other things, the HHS mandate, Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOC and religious-liberty claims under First Amendment provisions other than the Religion Clauses.
Interested members of the public are invited to attend. Members of the public may also submit comments until April 21, 2013, on any of the above topics by sending them to the above address or emailing to email@example.com
I imagine that Hot Air readers might have something to add to these proceedings.
