Newsletter: Week of June 18, 2018


Last month, it came to light that a Yale student, who called the police to report on a black fellow graduate student for falling asleep in their dormitory lounge, had previously been an author at The Humanist, the American Humanist Association's magazine.

This month's edition of the magazine, titled "Five Fierce Humanists: Unapologetically Black Women Beyond Belief," features important and timely voices, and works to make amends. 

Greg is proud to be featured in a nearly 3,000-word interview on the evolution of his work and thinking, where he  discusses the "crisis of ethics in technology," aspects of American secularism that are "vulnerable to or even prop up systemic racism, sexism, and other unhelpful forms of privilege," and more.  Read his interview here.


While we won't be meeting regularly on Sundays, we invite you to join some of our volunteer-led initiatives, which will take place at the Hub through mid-July.  Newcomers are always welcome, so feel free to check them out at any time! More details below and on our website.
