The Secular Student Alliance will be hosting its annual conference on the Harvard University campus in Cambridge, MA next year, in conjunction with Harvard’s Humanist Chaplaincy. The Chaplaincy will be celebrating its 30th anniversary and symposium. This is bound to be a very exciting event!
The SSA will be hosting a separate activist training session in addition to the main events and speakers.
Which speakers, you ask?
The tentative list currently includes:
Humanist Philanthropist Louis Appignani.
Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine.
Lori Lipman Brown, Director, Secular Coalition for America.
Ambassador John L. Loeb Jr.
Ambassador Carl Coon.
The SSA will be offering travel grants for high school/college students interested in coming to the conference. I’ll post the application and registration page when they are available.
And if the aforementioned names didn’t impress you, then keep in mind that I’ll also be there! Woo! I’m scheduled to take part in a panel discussion on the future of Humanism.
If you’d like to make a donation to the SSA or contribute specifically to the travel fund (so we can bring more students to the Harvard conference), please click here. Your contribution is tax deductible and highly appreciated!
