Asian Americans, Religious Freedom, and the State

May 9 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT


The Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion, and Public Life will present “Asian Americans, Religious Freedom, and the State,” a panel discussion featuring nationally-recognized experts, on May 9, 2024, at 4:00pm in UCSB’s Betty Elings Wells Pavilion (Faculty Club). This event is free and open to the public.

How have Asian Americans pursued legal recognition, religious freedom, and religious equality in the United States? This public forum convenes scholars from across disciplines to discuss how state governance has defined and regulated Asian American religious liberty claims and how Asian American religious practitioners have advocated for rights and recognition.
