In a global climate in which the criminalization and economic disenfranchisement of people of color of all genders and sexualities has become more acute, what role can secular humanism play in communities of color in the U.S.?
The 2016 Secular Social Justice conference will feature an incredible array of activists, organizers and educators from the secular and social justice communities. The conference will be held January 30th and 31st at Rice University in Houston, Texas. SSJ focuses on the lived experiences, cultural context, shared struggle and social history of secular humanist people of color and their allies. The event will include panels on economic justice, feminism(s) of color, LGBTQ atheists of color, African American Humanist traditions in hip hop, racial politics and the crisis of New Atheism and much more.
