Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The intersection of religion, race, and the law will be discussed from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Indiana State Capitol Building. The free event is sponsored by Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis and The Church Federation of Greater Indianapolis.

Judges, church leaders, and a law professor will discuss the question, "What does it mean to have our first Hispanic-Latina Supreme Court member, Justice Sonia Sotomayor?"

The featured speaker is Myra C. Selby, a former Indiana Supreme Court justice and the first African-American to be named to that position. She is now a partner at Ice Miller in downtown Indianapolis.

Other panelists include Indiana Supreme Court Justice Brent Dickson; Lake Circuit Judge Lorenzo Arredondo; Marion Superior Judge David Shaheed; Henry C. Karlson, professor of law emeritus, I.U. School of Law - Indianapolis; Rev. Dr. Huberto Pimentel, Hispanic Ministries, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); and Rev. Dr. Felipe Martinez, Whitewater Valley Presbytery.

A tour of the Supreme Court chamber from 3 to 4 p.m. will precede the program. Simultaneous Spanish translation will be provided. Free parking is available in the parking lot to the north of the Capitol building.
