- Pride Multifaith Celebration
This interfaith event is hosted by several different organizations for Pride month. Our own Jen Scott will be among the many organizational leaders speaking. This will be the first time an atheist/humanist has been invited to speak. This is also the first time this event will be held as a collaboration of Cincinnati Pride, Northern Kentucky Pride, and Lawrenceburg Pride. SCHEDULE 6:30-7:00pm Snacks & beverage provided by Jeff Thomas Catering 7:00-8:30pm Multi-Faith Service NOTE This is an interfaith event. There will be prayers and many religious attendees. Our participation in this is part of our interfaith work and is key to normalizing humanism, skepticism, and atheism. For some attendees, it may be the first time they actively engage with someone who is non-religious. We want that to be a good experience for them and for our members. Do not attend this event if you are not comfortable in an interfaith setting. Do not attend this event if you like to debate about religion. This is not the setting or the place for that. Reasons to attend: - Show support for the religious organizations who are open and affirming for the LGBTQ community. - Invite your religious friends to an event you can agree on - Help us with our interfaith work - Beautiful view of the cities - Snacks?

- FIG: Religion in Healthcare
This event is hosted by the Free Inquiry Group and is their monthly meeting. Hope you can join COR for this educational event! Nathan Michael is an administrative director in a large religious health system in Cincinnati. He will explain why religion is so prevalent in healthcare and go over some of the religious rules that restrict certain types of care as well as how religious ideology prevents healthcare providers from giving certain types of care. Nathan's presentation will include personal stories related to religion and healthcare, how the two intertwine on the topics of fertility, abortion, stem cell research, and how we can keep humanism in healthcare.
- Signs from Heathens: ASL Study Group
Join us as we learn American Sign Language together! BUILDING AND LOCATIONS We will be focusing buildings, locations and giving directions. REVIEW BASIC CONVERSATIONS AND ANIMALS We'll review signs for animals and basic conversations. NEW TO ASL No problem! Several of us are new beginners, we're learning together. WHY LEARN ASL Nearly 28 Million Americans have some form of hearing loss. Currently, a small percentage of those can only communicate via sign language, and are forced to stick within the deaf community. One great advantage of learning sign is expanding the social networking of those people, allowing them to further participate in society more easily. Other reasons to learn sign language: Become more expressive: Sign language is the key to create vivid and lasting imagery. Anyone who enjoys story telling, or making jokes can incorporate sign language to better captivate audiences. Pick up on body language: Given that sign language is a visual language, it's no surprise that you can also learn to better understand body language. Hold silent conversations with friends: Communicate in secret! Whether it be clubs, movie theaters or libraries, you don't need to whisper or yell to talk to your friends in sticky situations. Learning is fun!
