Our member Dianne Post is an attorney whose career has focused on fighting one of the chief causes of poverty and injustice in the world – the inequality of women – with passion, creativity and great effect. Over the past 26 years, Ms. Post has worked in over 14 countries to design and implement fundamental legal, policy and programmatic reform on issues related to gender equality. Post works with vulnerable populations, especially women and children, in developing, transitional and developed countries to achieve their human rights and freedom from violence.

Dianne Post is a gender expert in violence against women and children including domestic violence, sex-trafficking, prostitution and pornography. In addition to gender issues, Post has worked intensely on issues of discrimination related to African-Americans and the Roma in Europe. She works with governments, foreign aid agencies, and other partners to create, reform or implement laws, train actors in the government and criminal justice sectors and empower vulnerable populations.

Post also consults on international cases having filed cases and had oral argument in the European Court of Human Rights, with United Nations bodies and the Inter- American Commission on Human Rights.

    Dianne mentioned that she had complained in July about the County Board of Supervisors starting meetings with a prayer, and not yet gotten a response. I'd like the details again, so that I can know what I'm talking about when I contact my Supervisor.

    By the way, you can find out which District you're in here: http://www.maricopa.gov/BOS/districts.aspx

    and Supervisors can be emailed from here:

    There were way more than 25 Humanists in attendance. There were 70-75 people. They just didn't all rsvp on Meetup!

      That is true. It was a great turnout and a great group of people!

    I totally reversed how I viewed prostitution, (and what I call those involved in the trade!). EXCELLENT! I think we are not members and need to be....we are FFRF and also need to be Humanists.

      Donna and Al, We would love to have you as new members. We have a few who are also members of FFRF and other organizations. And I'm glad you enjoyed the presentation! Btw, it changed my perspective as well!

    Dianne Post gave a lot of great information, convincing me, and I think many others, to change my ideas about how to deal with prostitution.
