Colorado Secular Conference - Denver

The second annual Colorado Secular Conference will be taking place in Denver, Colorado on July 20th. This event is being sponsored by the Secular Hub and features a great lineup of speakers. Tickets for this event can be purchased online for $20 or $15 for students and seniors.

FEATURED SPEAKERS

Katherine Stewart
She is the author of the The Good News Club: The Christian Right's Stealth Assault on America's Children, a chilling expose of the well-funded, highly coordinated effort by Christian Nationalists to use public schools to advance a fundamentalist agenda.

Seth Andrews
He is the popular host of The Thinking Atheist and author of Deconverted: a journey from religion to reason. Raised in a devoutly religious home, Seth now speaks out through videos, podcasts, and his writings about atheism, religion, and rational thinking.

Sean Faircloth
He is the Strategy and Policy Director of the Richard Dawkins Foundation and the author of Attack of the Theocrats, How the Religious Right Harms Us All and What We Can Do About It. Sean served ten years in the Maine legislature and is featured in Atheism: A New Strategy

Betsy Weatherhead
She is a Senior Scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder who works on climate change, ozone depletion, and general environmental issues.

Rebecca Hale
She is the President of the American Humanist Association, and a lifelong humanist. In 1993, concerned about the disturbing effects of the rise of evangelical Christians in Colorado Springs, she and her husband started the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs and their web-based business EvolveFISH.com.

If you need another reason to support this event, please consider that Humanists Doing Good created and hosted the inaugural Colorado Secular Conference last year in Grand Junction. We're excited to see this event continuing this year and encourage people to try and support this conference if at all possible. If you believe you may be attending or would like to see if there are carpooling opportunities, please post in the comments or let us know in another way. So far we are aware of four of us from Humanists Doing Good who are planning to attend and a fifth with a possible interest in attending.

    Unfortunately, it is not looking like Velvet and I will be able to offer anyone a ride to the event, but we may be able to offer a ride back on Sunday.
