At the Summit for Religious Freedom (SRF) you’ll have the opportunity to hear from stellar keynote speakers. We’re pleased today to announce the newest addition to that line-up: Erin Reed, a transgender journalist based in Washington, D.C., whose work has been cited by the Associated Press, Reuters, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and many more major media outlets.
In late January, Reed exposed a plot by state legislators in Michigan and Ohio who, during an event on X (formerly Twitter), openly talked about their plans to deny gender-affirming care to all Americans, not just minors.
Reed tracks LGBTQ+ legislation around the United States for her subscription newsletter, ErinInTheMorning.com and has produced a map showing which U.S. states offer the most and least protection for transgender individuals. You can follow her on X/Twitter and TikTok @ErinInTheMorn.
Reed joins two other SRF keynoters: Anthea Butler is the Geraldine R. Segal Professor in American Social Thought and chair of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a former professor of constitutional law who served on the Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
SRF will feature these keynote speakers as well as stimulating breakout sessions, panel discussions and other events. Click here to register.
