      Barry will emphasize three major church-state issues that are popping up
      around the country: illegal political activity by churches, government

      birth control for their employees.

      Assault on America’s Children. She has written for the New York Times,
      Reuters, and the Guardian.

      landmark 1963 United States Supreme Court case of Abington School
      District v. Schempp which declared that required public-school-sanctioned
      Bible readings were unconstitutional.
      And Jessica
      Ahlquist, a high school student, who was the plaintiff in a case
      where the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island
      ruled that a "School Prayer" banner posted in Cranston High
      School West was a violation of the Establishment Clause of the United
      States Constitution and ordered its removal. She will receive the 2013
      Religious Liberty Award of the Massachusetts Chapter.
