Sen. Joseph Lieberman awarded LDS law society's International Religious Liberty Award

Vowing to stand with the LDS community against religious discrimination, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., accepted the International Religious Liberty Award of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society and the International Center for Law and Religion Studies on Oct. 7 in Washington D.C. The award recognizes outstanding contributions of those who work to protect and promote religious liberty.

At a ceremony on Capitol Hill, James R. Rasband, dean of the Brigham Young University Law School, presented the award to the senator who is a widely respected advocate of religious freedom and a man who honors his own religious convictions. Sen. Lieberman co-sponsored the International Religious Freedom Act in 1998, which created a commission, an ambassador at large, and a reporting system to monitor and respond to religious persecution.
