Secular Leadership Day

Is this for you?

This day is perfect if you're involved with:

  • an atheist or freethought meetup group
  • a Secular Student Alliance affiliate
  • a Sunday Assembly affiliate
  • a skeptic or science-focused group
  • a chapter of the AHA, FFRF, AU, or other national secular organizations
  • and more!

This year we are featuring a Leadership Day, on Saturday prior to Freethought Day.

Secular volunteers, leaders, and advocates are all invited to join us in Sacramento from 10 AM - 4 PM for a day of networking, workshops, information sharing, and more.

We'll cover your lunch, as well as drinks and snacks throughout the day.

Location

The location of the event will be provided to all those who register in advance.
