Covering Religion and Politics: Lessons from Pope Francis' Visit and for the 2016 Campaign

The day after the Iowa Caucuses, three respected young journalists examined the timeless topic of religion and politics and their experiences at the intersection of media, faith, and public life. Following Pope Francis' visit and in the midst of a surprising presidential campaign, what are the links between religious convictions and voters' choices and the connections between Catholic principles and public policy? 
The panel that examined these questions included:
John Carr, director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, opened the discussion and Angela Miller McGraw, program director of the Initiative, moderated the discussion.

The Salt and Light Gathering was specifically for Catholic policy professionals and leaders under 40 and those interested in learning about the intersection of Catholic Social Thought and public policy.
