Secular Social Justice Con This Weekend, Watch Online!

Secular Social Justice Con This Weekend, Watch Online! April 2, 2018

On Saturday April 7th, All Souls Church Unitarian in Washington D.C. will host the Secular Social Justice 2018 conference! Exploring the connection between secular humanist values and social justice activism, the conference prioritizes the liberatory visions of activists of color who believe social progress must come through human intervention.

This is exceptionally important. For far too long secular and humanist spaces have been white-dominated and have excluded the voices and presence of people of color. This conference, by foregrounding the voices of exceptional thinkers and activists of color, goes some way toward redressing that historic injustice. Moreover, by featuring the secular thinking of people of color, the conference helps make humanism more humanist: for a humanism which represents only the perspectives and concerns of white humans is not addressing the needs of all humanity.

The conference features a huge number of impressive speakers, including Dr. Sikivu Hutchinson (one of today’s best writers on the intersection of humanism and social justice) and Dr. Juhem Navarro-Rivera, a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Humanist Studies.

You can sign up until tomorrow here, and if you can’t make it to D.C., you can live stream the conference at this link:
