Tolerance Means Dialogue
Join the Arizona State Law ACS Student Chapter, the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, the J Reuben Clark Law Society, OUTLaw at ASU and the Federalist Society for the Tolerance Means Dialogue Event Series beginning Thursday, April 8, 2021, at 12:15 PM, which will explore "What can we learn about bridging divides in America today?” For this event we are happy to welcome Dialogue Catalysts Shannon Minter, Legal Director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Robin Fretwell Wilson, Mildred Van Voorhis Chair in Law at the University of Illinois College of Law. The event will be moderated by Zachary Kramer, Executive Associate Dean of Faculty and Professor of Law at Arizona State University.
The Tolerance Means Dialogues engage people of different perspectives to find solutions to problems at the intersection of faith, sexuality, and families. You can read more about the project here.
As a part of each Dialogue, undergraduate and graduate students compete for two $750 Tolerance Scholarships by submitting a 500-word essay on what tolerance means to them. The essay is due on Thursday, April 1, 2020 by midnight. This is an excellent opportunity for Millennials and Gen Z, who have grown up with unprecedented diversity, to add their voices and ideas for solutions to the public debate. Prior winners have gone on to Yale Law School and other great things. You can read about past winners in Forbes, here and in Deseret News, here.
You can register for the Dialogue and submit an essay on the webpage here.
The winning essayists take center stage at the Dialogue and present alongside the experts who act as catalysts for the Dialogue.
