Welcome to CFI's monthly lecture night series!

For those wanting a more activist secular community, we have a special treat this month. Our guest speaker is Kelly Damerow, the acting Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America (CFI is a member of the SCA). She will talk about the current legislative issues that the SCA is working on and what we, as ordinary citizens, can do to help the cause. Current issues include promoting rational evidence-based policy decisions and eliminating religious/philosophical exemptions to vaccines, among many others.

Each month (with the exception of August and December) we feature a presentation/lecture on a variety of topics. Our primary focus is on science, but we also have talks on skepticism and humanism and beyond. We try to structure the meetings to begin with a presentation that leaves time for great discussions and Q&A sessions afterward. We try to post the topic and speaker bio as soon as that information is known -- please check back soon. If you have speaker suggestions and/or ideas that are in keeping with our mission, please feel free to email your suggestions to [masked]

See you there!

P.S. We usually head to Ali Baba's on nearby Craig Street at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-lecture or pre-movie dinner. Please leave a comment below if you are coming to dinner so we can include you in the reservation. Thanks!
