We will be hosting a Skip the Small Talk at this Humanist Hub event. See below for more details.

In an era of “fake news,” those of us who believe in science, evidence, truth and justice must come together defend our values. But in order to do so effectively, we must become closer as a community-- and that means celebrating our vulnerability and compassion.

On Thursday evening November 16, The Humanist Hub, a vibrant and inclusive community of atheists, agnostics and allies, will host a special event celebrating the 40th anniversary of our organization’s founding as the first humanist chaplaincy in North America.

This very special event will be “a Night of Truth, Justice and Vulnerability,” in honor of the three special themes of our current 40th anniversary program series. Our keynote speaker, on “Truth in an Era of Fake News,” will be Jill Abramson, the former Executive Editor of the New York Times. Ms. Abramson is the first and only woman ever to lead the New York Times, and is a current Harvard professor.

The event will also feature Skip the Small Talk, an organization creating one-of-a-kind events, grounded in psychology research, that help strangers really get to know each other. Finally, we will be honoring outstanding local social justice leaders for their unique contributions to humanism (details TBA).

Tickets for this event are $25, but Humanist Hub Sustaining and Growth members can reserve tickets for $5 each. Sustaining members can reserve up to two $5 tickets, and growth members can reserve up to 4 $5 tickets.
