PEN and the ACLU will join forces to present Tariq Ramadan’s first public appearance in the United States since he was barred from entering the country in 2004. This event will offer a unique opportunity to hear Professor Ramadan talk about issues relating to secularism, Islam, and democracy, along with Dalia Mogahed, Joan Wallach Scott, and Jacob Weisberg.

The panel discussion is presented as part of an initiative to promote national reflection and accountability in the United States. It also celebrates a victory of important principle—that American audiences should be able to hear directly from important figures such as Professor Ramadan.
