The freethought movement has a number of siblings. The American Atheists are holding their National Convention in Salt Lake City April 17-20. Humanists of Utah is proud to welcome Dan Ellis, president of the Atheists of Utah to discuss the convention and highlight the atheist perspective of freethought. Over the past couple of years we have been trying to recognize and improve our relationship with organizations that have slightly different perspectives on key concepts of humanism. April's meeting promises to be revealing and constructive in the growth of the freethought movement.
The meeting will be held Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 7:30 PM in Eliot Hall at the First Unitarian Church at 569 South 1300 East, in Salt Lake City. The lecture will be followed by questions and answers and light refreshments and informal discussion. All interested people are welcome; there is no charge although donations are always welcome.
