What's the Secular Social Justice 2018 Conference all about?

Secular Social Justice was pioneered by feminist humanist activist Sikivu Hutchinson. According to Hutchinson, it was developed because "neither organized atheism nor organized humanism have ever addressed social, economic, gender, and racial justice from the perspective of communities of color."

Secular Social Justice 2018 prioritizes the liberatory visions of activists of color who believe social progress must come through human intervention. This all-day event is dedicated to connecting secular humanist values with strategies for transformational social justice through workshop training, discussion, networking, and coalition-building.
