    The panel will include state Representatives Lela Alston and Ken Clark; Will Gaona, Policy Director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona; a representative of Equality Arizona; Project Jigsaw; Planned Parenthood Arizona; and Secular Coalition for Arizona. A representative from the ACLU of Arizona will moderate.
