To all of my atheist, agnostic, secular, freethinker, humanist friends. There are a couple of conferences coming up that you may be interested in.
The first is the PA State Atheist/Humanist Conference in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, September 28-30th:
This conference will unite a number of organizations in Pennsylvania and proves to be a wonderful time with a ton of great speakers. It’s inexpensive ($50 for a weekend ticket) and if you live in PA you should definitely think about attending.
The second is NAPCON, the annual convention for the National Atheist Party. More politically driven, this also promises to be a wonderfully informative conference. It will be in Boston, October 5-7th. NAP’s mission statement is “The National Atheist Party (NAP) seeks to politically represent U.S. atheists and all who share the goal of a secular government by gathering the political strength of secularists nationwide while being guided by the values of secular humanism and evidenced-based reasoning.”
If you are so inclined then GO!!!
