"Bringing a Secular Perspective to the General Assembly" will introduce the 2014 Ohio Secular Summit.
Do you feel like too many laws are infused with religion? Are you unhappy with the number of laws restricting women's rights? Do you want to feel like more of the civic process? Do you feel it is time your General Assembly members understand where we are coming from as Secularists? The Ohio Secular Summit is right around the corner and a perfect opportunity to meet with your state government officials.
Monette Richards led the effort to organize the first Ohio Secular Summit in 2013, and she is currently working on this year's event, which will take place on Tuesday, January 28. Monette will talk about the laws and bills from the current General Assembly, why individual participation in politics is so important, and how you can get involved by participating in the Ohio Secular Summit.
Join us at 12:30 for pizza in the meeting room!

Monette Richards is a lifelong atheist/feminst/activist. Recently, she brought all three of these traits together. She and her husband dragged their teenage daughter to the Reason Rally in DC in March of 2012. Attending the Women in Secularism conference that same year motivated her to get involved even more. She is currently volunteering in the capacity of President of Center For Inquiry - Northeast Ohio, the Board of Directors for Secular Woman and is exploring community building projects.
Following in her grandmother's and father's footsteps, Ms. Richards is self-taught in information technology, with no formal post-secondary education. She has worked her way to her current position running the IT department for a local company. When not being an activist, one can find her riding her motorcycle, knitting or making fun of pop culture.
