You’ve heard stories of the Washington floral designer, the Kentucky T-shirt printer, the Colorado cake artist, and the Arizona custom art studio. All are creative professionals who have been told that putting their religious freedom aside is, as a New Mexico Supreme Court judge said in an earlier case, “the price of citizenship”—a price that has included the loss of business, loss of livelihood, and threat of jail and criminal penalties. ADF will argue the floral artist’s case before the Washington Supreme Court in November, and the cake artist has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his case.

Some have called them heroes, others have demonized them. Come have lunch with them and decide for yourselves. Join The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway for an interview-style panel of Arlene’s Flowers’ Barronelle Stutzman, Hands On Originals’ Blaine Adamson, and Brush & Nib Studio’s Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski. Former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran will give closing remarks. The discussion will conclude with a time for audience Q&A with the panelists and moderator.
