Earlham Affirms Key Values in Response to Controversy over Indiana’s ‘Religious Freedom’ Bill

(Editor's note: The following is a statement from Earlham College President David Dawson.) Many across Indiana and the nation have questioned whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signed into law last week by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, will have the consequence of enabling Indiana organizations to use religious belief as a justification for discriminatory practices. While the Quaker custom of Earlham College is not to make institutional pronouncements on matters of public controversy, but instead to encourage all individuals to seek the truth and express ethical judgments as each person sees fit, this controversy nonetheless affords an important opportunity for Earlham College, as an Indiana institution founded and still informed by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), to express once again its own thoroughgoing institutional commitment to the values of diversity and inclusion.

Earlham Affirms Key Values in Response to Controversy over Indiana’s ‘Religious Freedom’ Bill

Many across Indiana and the nation have questioned whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signed into law last week by Indiana Gov.
