Wisdom from Secular Students and Harvard Humanists

Much has been done in the past several years to nurture and enable younger generations of humanists and secularists. This demographic has been the most receptive to ideas and values important to the non theistic community. This is your opportunity to hear about what's gone well, what lessons we have learned, and what the future may hold. 

Come interact with  Neil Wehneman, development director for the Secular Student Alliance (SSA), and Jesse Galef, National Community Coordinator for the Humanist Community at Harvard (HCH). Each will give a brief talk about their past and present involvement in the secular community, as well as what they hope to see happen in the future. Best of all, after the talks you will have the opportunity to casually mingle with them to your heart's content. It will be a lot of fun, so definitely come check it out. 

Our hosting venue is Bloc 11 Cafe, which has great drinks, salads, and sandwiches (including many tasty vegetarian and vegan options!). It is located in Union Square, Somerville, and has ample parking and transit options.

    The meetup was good. In that people that identify as secularist, showed up to support others of that identity. However, long before I could identify as anything. I was born darkly complected. The society of which I was born identified me as Brown/Black/Negro/African American. That same society also set up discriminatory economic,and educational programs, which were implemented with violence, and deception.
    I seldom, if ever experience the secular communities mentioning that discrimination, and reparations for it. Gay rights or women's rights, are always more important.
    And, Black Afro/American males who are heterosexual, get no mention.
    Nevertheless, they as a rule are severely discriminated against. And the secular social environment makes discussing that very discomforting. And it's not the discomfort that is most bothersome. It's the efforts expended against repairing that discrimination.
    In other words, it's secular racism, replacing religious racism.
    Which may be some progress?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
