Central Ohio’s Inspiring History of Secular Activism (1800-1950)

If you know history, you know that those "new atheists" and "new Humanists" are nothing new. We may be new to some people, but we've really been around for a long time, and the struggle for civil rights, freedom of thought, and church state separation has been with us since the colonial days in Franklin county. The accomplishments of early secularists offer hope for Humanists now as well as inviting us to do our part to make life better.

Board member Derrick Strobl will be presenting original research from primary sources about our hidden history. Derrick will draw on his background as both a lawyer and teacher to present these encouraging discoveries.

Join us at 12:30 for pizza in the meeting room!
