2/ (LAAG is about promotion and celebration of 'Reason' as a whole (with atheism as the main, but not only topic). We list those external events that may be of interest to LAAGers, & to support the whole 'reason' community of organisations and groups but we cannot guarantee their content, though generally the organisations we list are known and trusted)

4/ LAAG organisers may not be present, so if you want to meet others who have RSVP'd you will need to arrange to do so by yourselves - in the comments boxes, or by emailing each other.

Karima Bennoune carried out nearly 300 interviews over three years with people from nearly 30 countries, from Afghanistan to Mali, to document peaceful, local human rights struggles against fundamentalism. These are some of the most important, and most overlooked, human rights struggles in the world today. From Pakistani peace activists to Tunisian feminists, from Chechen journalists to Algerian victims of terrorism, Bennoune will share their stories and provide a human rights analysis from these many frontlines.
Karima Bennoune is Professor of International Law at UC Davis School of Law, a member of the board of the network of Women Living Under Muslim Laws and a former Amnesty International Legal Advisor.
