Beyond Congregations: The Humanist Community Project at Harvard
Saturday, June 22, 5:30 – 6:45 p.m.
Convention Center 109-112
Several recent studies have revealed that a rapidly changing percentage of young people are affiliating with no religious tradition. The Humanist chaplain at Harvard University, founder and leader of a vibrant secular community organization, will describe a unique response to “the rise of the nones” that is succeeding beyond expectations. Our speaker is Gregory M. Epstein, Humanist chaplain at Harvard University, who will be joined by Dr. John B. Hooper, president of the HUUmanists.
