Humanism & HIV

Online event

For four decades the human immunodeficiency virus has left its mark on humanity. From medicine, to culture, politics, and perspectives from the human condition itself, HIV deserves our attention.

This year for World AIDS Day (12/1), we will be exploring the history of the virus, the state of medical research and response, the socio-cultural aspects of public awareness and stigma and talk to a panel including a researcher who is tirelessly working to end the pandemic.

Our guest is Mati Kedzior. Mati is a scientist (microbiologist) from Poland who has been a postdoctoral associate in the US since 2017 in different universities, working on rare congenital disorders, origins of life, and pathogenic microbes with particular emphasis on sexually transmitted pathogens. Currently employed at a non-profit organization named International AIDS Vaccine Initiative to work on optimized HIV antibodies to be used as preventive and therapeutic products.

BACK AGAIN! Brickwood Pub Downtown Riverside Social Gathering

The Brickwood

Come meet your old and new friends and experience our interesting downtown Riverside at the newish pub, The Brickwood, a charming place that is also conducive to audible conversation. They serve wine and a million beers and allow us to bring in pizza so we’re getting Bricks and Birch Pizza, regular and vegetarian. My recent favorite is brie and apple pizza. Please bring $10 cash to pitch in for the pie and a card for your own drinks. Pizza is arriving around 6:30.

We encourage you to bring your friends (even the delusional religious ones cuz we luv them, too), and significant others. Expect to shuffle your seating on cue several times so you get to visit with more folks. Remember to leave a tip since we're taking up a prime spot there for 3 hours offset only by what we order to drink.

The Brickwood is in the Mission Inn mall area. Find Simple Simon’s, on the same side as Brickwood across the mall from the Mission and come three doors up towards Mission Inn Avenue and you'll see it. The sign is small, easy to miss. There is street or parking in lots nearby. Google Parkopedia for free spaces before you leave. We’ll be there at 5 pm but come anytime you can. Look for us at the long table. Please be vaccinated ONLY. I've had all three and a flu shot.

Humanism & Human Rights

Online event

Friday December 10th represents Human Rights Day internationally. On this day in 1948 the United Nations issued the Universal Declaration for Human Rights, a document which resonates as quite bold still today.

On 12/12, we will be meeting on Zoom/and in person (Jason's) to cover a secular platform for morality and ethics in our humanistic commitment to human rights.

We will dig deep and explore how bold we currently are in our human rights aspirations vs. how much more we would aspire to be.

We will come together also to concentrate on an ongoing human rights crisis: the plight of LGBTQIA persons under threat of torture and death at the hands of the Taliban (and what one organization is doing to help).
