"Notre Dame’s name has been invoked with regard to Indiana's version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. While the university does not comment on specific pieces of state legislation, and had no role in the passage of the Indiana statute, we reiterate our commitment as a Catholic university to maintaining a community where all are welcome and valued, to combating unjust discrimination wherever it occurs, and to respecting all rights, including but not limited to the foundational right to free exercise of religion."
This conference is organized by the Inter-University Program for Latino Research, headquartered at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and hosted by the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame.
