Foundation Beyond Belief's Humanism at Work National Conference
Update 7/15/2015: The 2015 FBB conference is cancelled. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Thanks!
Last year's conference, the first of its kind in the freethought community, centered on how nontheists could put their compassionate humanism to work for a better world. It included TED-style presentations on philanthropy, volunteering, and community building, as well as practical workshops, panels, and hands-on volunteer opportunities.
This year's one-day conference and charity benefit will be held on July 25th at 2:00 pm at the beautiful, historic Park Plaza hotel in Boston, Massachusetts (only 1/4 mile from the iconic Cheers bar, where we will meet for a Friday evening mixer).
Our event will be centered around the theme #blacklivesmatter: listen, learn, think, discuss, act. Sikivu Hutchinson (sponsored by HUUmanists) will deliver the keynote speech: Colorblind Lies & Meritocracy Myths: Moving Secular Social Justice. 50% of the proceeds from this event will go to Community Change, Inc., a charity working directly on anti-racism education and advocacy.
Here's your chance to say goodbye to outgoing Executive Director Dale McGowan and meet the incoming executive director Noelle George. This unique event will include the following:
Some of the voices you will hear at the event are Professor Monica Miller of Lehigh University, Professor Fiery Cushman of Harvard, Shane Slone (a fresh new voice on race relations sponsored by Black Nonbelievers), and FBB staff members Rebecca Vitsmun, Conor Robinson and AJ Chalom, and more.
Tickets are $125, with 10 student tickets available at $49.
