"Conviction vs. Compromise: Being a Person of Faith In a Liberal Democracy," to be held on Tuesday, September 4th at 7:00 PM in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. This is the kick-off event for this year's Notre Dame Forum, which is on the theme of challenges facing American democracy.

Rev. Richard Cizik, President of the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good
Most Rev. Joseph Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville, Vice-president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops
Elder Dallin H. Oaks, Member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Rabbi David Saperstein, Director and Counsel of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism
Cathlenn Kaveny and I will be the moderators.
