Plan now to join Regent University, and other human rights advocates, as we continue to seek justice, both locally and globally. The three panels of the symposium will discuss the foundations of human rights (primarily as it relates to sexual autonomy), and two negative legal effects of the contemporary understanding of the human body: sex as a business and children as property.
Benjamin Nolot, founder and president of Exodus Cry, will close the event with a challenging address during the evening fundraising banquet at The Founders Inn.
“This symposium is important, because it calls forth discussion of topics that are at the forefront of culture but that many Christians are unwilling to talk about,” said Ernie Walton, director of Regent’s Center for Global Justice. “As Christians, we must be leaders in talking about difficult issues, bringing Christ and His truth to bear on all things.”
Several subject-matter experts will preside over the panels, including Arina Grossu, director of the Center for Human Dignity of the Family Research Council; Laila Mickelwait, manager of policy and public affairs for Exodus Cry; Scott Alleman, assistant Commonwealth’s attorney; and Jeff Ventrella, senior counsel/senior vice-president of Strategic Training Alliance Defending Freedom.
Registration for the event is free and open to the community. Fees apply to attendees participating in the luncheon and banquet portions of the event.
