Sounds like a great new conference is in the offing in Columbia, MO. I'll be out of town so I won't be able to attend, but I encourage the rest of you to carpool over to Columbia and check this out.
SashaCon is a new secular conference in the college town of Columbia, Mo. and is intended to help all people in the Midwest, especially students, to get involved in secular activism and learn from our phenomenal speakers.
The idea for SashaCon began in the summer of 2013, when the officers of MU SASHA (Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists & Agnostics) gathered together to plan a free conference for nonreligious people to meet others in the community and meet the activists who have come before them. Through the hard work of a few college students, we have created the type of conference that we, as students, would want to go to. We are proud to hold the conference on the beautiful MU campus.
MU SASHA planned SashaCon with the help of the Kansas City Atheist Coalition and the Secular Student Alliance at University of Central Missouri, two of the best secular groups in the Show-Me State.
