Day of Solidarity
*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
Date: January 16, 2012
What: Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers
When: February 26, 2012
Where: The Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers (DoS) is a nationwide event during Black History Month to promote community and solidarity among blacks in America who identify as non-believers: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, free-thinkers, etc. DoS has been organized as a way to counter the religious voice that all too often serves as the lone voice of black consciousness and experience. These gatherings in cities and towns across the U.S. will promote fellowship and the pursuit of humanist strategies to solve the problems facing humanity - especially those affecting the black community.
The events will be unique, customized by each of the organizers and attendees. DOS gatherings will take place in coffeehouses, restaurants or other casual settings. Larger groups may convene in libraries or other public venues. Although there is no formal itinerary for the DOS events, organizers are encouraged to include a segment on historical black non-theists, share life experiences, plan for the next DOS, and there should be ample time to socialize - get acquainted!
