In 2015, the UA Quest RT Series returned to its tradition of numbered forums thematically done as trilogies and dedicated to examining overarching national issues (after having run a “situation driven” trilogy in the 2012-2014 period). This year, on October 27, 2016, the UA Quest RT focused on Ukraine and Religious Freedom, the second of three explorations intended to assess UA”s ability to find its own version of “e pluribus unum.”
