Drink deep from the latest books by our own Humanist Press authors and other Humanist writers; dive into a pool of nationwide social justice opportunities - immigration reform and opposition to censorship; quench your thirst for updates on cooperative projects on leadership training and humanist community.
All this and the latest info on local Humanist groups and programs in the UU universe; engagement with representatives of local and regional secular organizations; the latest copy of the Journal of Religious Humanism and a collection of freethought wit and wisdom on stickers, pins and magnets.
Plus the chance to meet and greet HUU Board members and booth volunteers - experts tell us they are the liveliest folks at the General Assembly!
Stop by - refresh yourself, ask a question, give your opinion, renew your membership, get a UU Humanist namebadge ribbon to show your Humanist pride, peruse the displays, purchase a pin-on, stick-on slogan or some more substantial reading, make a new commitment to humanist values, make a new friend, make your day at GA!
Some say it will be worth the trip to Providence just to stop by the HUUmanists booth; some say you sense a deep and resonant pulsing there that is the heartbeat of UUism; some say you can't have more fun with your clothes on; all we know is - it's all good, but it won't be perfect till you get there. See you at the booth?
"Some say it will be worth the trip to Providence just to stop by the HUUmanists booth"
Yes, it was! I stayed at a friend's house, parked in the wrong spot in her parking lot, and my car was towed ($141 to get it out! grrr)... and it was STILL worth it!
For those behind the booth and at those I met later that night, it was great to meet you and I hope to see or talk with you all again sometime.
