The Growing Threat of Christian Nationalism with Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons, Katherine Stewart, Eric K. Ward and Robert Siegel

The United States was founded on the notion of freedom of religion, and yet today, a growing number of people believe the country should be rooted in Christian values, causing concern that Christian nationalism is becoming a threat to our democracy. Join our distinguished panelists to learn why we should be paying attention to the rise of Christian nationalism and what can be done about it. They will also discuss how Christian nationalism overlaps with white nationalism and intersects with antisemitism, racism and other forms of hate and extremism.
