Larry Decker on Hope and Humanism: This is Our Time

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Larry T. Decker, Executive Director of Secular Coalition for America will be our Sunday Speaker on October 8.

His topic: This Is Our Time: How Hope and Humanism During the Trump Administration is More Important Than Ever

For humanists keeping up with current events, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Our civil rights are under siege from every direction and there are so many battles, all of them worthwhile, that need to be fought. In the face of injustice and adversity, humanism can inspire us to action and provide us a foundation for effective resistance.

Drawing on his experience serving as the Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America in Washington DC, Larry will talk about:
• How the religious right and their allies in Congress have pushed an agenda that is as unconstitutional as it unpopular with the American people.
• How humanism can unify a diverse coalition of movements to fight together against a common enemy.
• And how the Secular Coalition for America is working to organize nontheists and humanists across the country to create impactful and lasting political change.

Doors open at 9:00 AM for optional breakfast ($5) and socializing. Presentation begins at 10:00 AM.
