The Carolinas Secular Conference is to convene once again this year. The venue for 2012 is Charleston, South Carolina, and groups from both North and South states will once more play a key role in defining our American secular future. The conference will be held Sept. 28-30 at the Charleston Marriott, 170 Lockwood Boulevard, in Charleston.
After the sucess of the first the regional conference in November 2011 in Carolina Beach, Humanist groups and active individual Freethinkers from across both North Carolina and South Carolina will attend the second regional Carolinas Secular Conference, hosted by the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry and organized by the Carolinas Secular Association.
The last few years have seen large growth in the Secular community across the entire country, and particularly here on the East Coast. Local groups and initiatives are now combining into a coordinated regional force to promote Freethought values of education, civil rights and community service.
The conference provides an opportunity for Secular Americans to actively engage in debate and share ideas about the growth of this movement.
Speakers at the conference include Edwina Rogers, Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America, the key Washington lobbying group for the Freethought movement, Maggie Ardiente of the American Humanist Association and Wilmington atheist organizer Mike Werner.
This event will set the goals and strategy for major Secular initiatives in 2013 across this key region of the East Coast. All those with an interest in Humanist, Atheist, Secular and Freethinking values are strongly encouraged to attend.
