Panelists at the May Coffee Talk, 2015/Tracy Simmons - SpokaneFAVS

Coffee Talk Today: Religious Freedom Laws

Thanks for a great Coffee Talk today everyone!

It was a smaller group than usual, with about 20 people in attendance, but it was fruitful conversation and we raised about $100 for SpokaneFAVS.

The discussion was also live streamed on Twitter for the first time (@SpokaneFAVS) and about 15 people tuned in.

See you for our next Coffee Talk on June 6 for a forum on Parenting.


Join Coffee Talk today for a Coffee Talk discussion on Religious Freedom Laws.

We’ll have two guest panelists, Anthony Rodin, visiting assistant political science professor from Whitworth University, and local organizer Bryce Peterson.

Other panelists are FAVS writers Pastor Jan Shannon, who wrote, “RFRA Laws Are Like a Bad Bra and Neal Schindler who wrote, “Agreement isn’t in the cards, but empathy should be and “RFRAs, false victimhood, and the “ick” factor.”

The discussion begins at 10 a.m. at Indaba Coffee/The Book Parlor, 1425 W Broadway Ave.

The conversation will continue with Pub Talk, 6:30 p.m., May 7.

All are welcome.
