Of Weddings, Babies and the Freedom of Speech
This will be a presentation by Jordan Lorence, Senior Counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), regarding two ADF cases that will be decided by the United States Supreme Court this term: Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission and NIFLA v. Becerra.

Jordan Lorence serves as senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom where he plays a key role in constitutional litigation with a primary focus on religious liberty, freedom of speech, student privacy, conscience rights of creative professionals, and the First Amendment freedoms of public university students and professors.

Lorence argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in the precedent-setting Southworth v. Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System challenging the university’s requirement that forced unwilling students to contribute to campus activist groups. He also led the challenge to New York City’s ban on private worship services after hours in vacant public school buildings in the long-running Bronx Household of Faith v. Board of Education of the City of New York case. Lorence also defended the right of conscience in Elane Photography v. Willock at the New Mexico Supreme Court.

Lorence has made media appearances on television and radio shows including Fox News, NBC’s Today Show, and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. His commentary has also appeared in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Daily News, The New York Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Washington Times, The Hill, and National Review.
