Sunday Speaker at HSGP: Mandisa Thomas of Black Nonbelievers

Join our friends at the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix on Sunday, December 8, for Sunday Speaker Mandisa Thomas: “How Religion Has Crippled the Black Community.”

While the Black community in the United States makes up approximately 12 percent of the population, 79 percent still identify as religious, which makes the subject of atheism challenging, and open identification very stigmatizing.

Mandisa Thomas will discuss the institutional reasons for the high religiosity in the Black community, how her organization Black Nonbelievers is building community and increasing visibility for those who need support, and how the secular community can improve on its understanding and help for people of color in the movement.

Black Nonbelievers’ merchandise will be available for purchase at the meeting.

Doors open at 9:00 am for optional buffet breakfast ($5 donation) and socializing. Presentation begins at 10:00 am.

Please RSVP on the HSGP website.

We invite you to join us on March 8 at 2pm at the Arizona House of Representatives, Judiciary and Public Safety Committee, Hearing Room 4 to share your stories and your views on end-of-life choices.  You must sign into the legislature’s “Request to Speak” system if you wish to speak in Committee.  If you can’t be at the Capitol, or you just don’t want to speak, you can still sign into the “Request to Speak” system and make your coments without physically being at the Capitol.

This bill allows heath care providers to opt out of end-of-life care without consequence.  Having this bill in committee is a rare opportunity for advocates of end-of-life choices to be heard at Legislature.  Come and speak to the importance of honoring end-of-life choices, including the very popular Advanced Directives.
