Secular Woman Work Conference Kickstarter
Minnesota Atheists is bringing back the summer regional conference!
Our last conference was the first Secular Women Work conference in 2015. We teamed up with Secular Woman and Campus Atheists, Skeptics, and Humanists to provide a weekend of activist training and inspiration at the University of Minnesota. It was a great success, so we’re bringing Secular Women Work back to Minnesota this year.
August 24-26, we’ll return to the University of Minnesota’s West Bank for more talks, panels, and workshops. All our speakers are women or genderqueer, but the conference is open to everyone who wants to become a more effective activist. Last time, we covered fundraising, lobbying, getting your message out despite a hostile press, as well as basic skills like avoiding burnout and assertive communication.
Greta Christina, Mandisa Thomas, and Jessica Xiao will headline the conference. We’ll add more speakers and workshop presenters based on the topics our attendees are interested in. Secular Woman is once again working with us, and Black Nonbelievers, Inc. joins us this year as an organizing sponsor.
Tickets for Secular Women Work are currently only available through our Kickstarter: Secular Women Work Returns. We’re running a Kickstarter for this to make sure there’s enough demand to support the conference. If the Kickstarter isn’t fully funded by Thursday, March 29, we won’t hold the conference. So get your ticket (or your t-shirt, sticker, ad in our program booklet) before then!
See you in August!
