new writing and media coverage on US Religious Freedom policy

Recently Donald Trump nominated Sam Brownback–the governor of Kansas–to be the US Ambassador for International Religious Freedom. This is an issue I worked on before coming to UVM (when I was with the Pew Research Center) so I follow it closely. I have some concerns about Brownback’s nomination, which I discussed in this post on Medium. I also was quoted in a piece by the Religion News Service about Brownback’s nomination.
