The #ToleranceMeans Dialogues, a lecture series designed by professors at the University of Illinois and Yale University to directly engage millenials, arrive in Idaho today, with a session at the state Capitol at 5 p.m. entitled, “Religion and Child Welfare: Do they have to be at odds? And can university students make a difference?”

The event, sponsored by the University of Idaho College of Law, Concordia University School of Law, and the Federalist Society, will run from 5-6:30 in Room EW 42 of the Capitol; it also will be live-streamed, thanks to Idaho Public Television's InSession streaming service, so you can watch it live online here.

The dialogue between Idaho Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, University of Idaho Law Professor Shaakirrah Sanders, University of Illinois Law Professor Robin Fretwell Wilson, and two student tolerance scholarship winners will be moderated by Rep. John McCrostie, D-Boise. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to
