WASHINGTON – On November 20, Becket will launch the nation’s first annual Religious Freedom Index, a comprehensive study that uses rigorous scale-construction methods to track trends in perspectives on American religious freedom.  The new study will provide in-depth information about American views on a wide range of religious liberty questions, with the aim of moving past the usual partisan talking points and culture war battles and toward a deeper understanding of how our society deals with religious differences.

Join us on November 20, 2019, for a presentation by Caleb Lyman, Becket’s Director of Research and Analytics, and panel discussion to examine the findings of the first annual Religious Freedom Index: American Perspectives on the First Amendment.
