Opening Remarks: Staying Relevant as a Movement

How does the secular movement stay relevant when rights are being threatened and rolled back and whether news is “fake” is dictated by a tweet? Greta Christina will offer her thoughts, then Stephanie Zvan will tell you how to navigate and participate in the conference.

5 p.m. – 6 p.m. CDT, Friday, April 13

There will be no Q&A for this session.
