Increasingly, Americans are choosing not to identify with a particular religious tradition. Between 2007 and 2014, this “none of the above” portion of the population increased from 16 to 23 percent. Fully one-third of young adults adhere to no religion. What do these changes mean for the future of religion? Is religion disappearing, or is it re-forming into new practices and beliefs? How will religious flux affect the rest of society, including American politics? Through TED-style talks, interactive discussions and videos documenting innovative religious and irreligious groups, this conference will provide a perspective on how religion, values, social relationships and meaning are being reimagined in Los Angeles and beyond. This event is an invitation-only conference. If you are interested in attending the event, please fill out this form with your name, affiliation and contact information to be added to the invite list. More details will be sent out at a future date.
