Last Thursday was Darwin Day! About 100 of our affiliate groups participated in the international event, with awesome events such as conferences, colloquiums, birthday parties, and more! To see a recap of the awesomeness, check out secularstudents.org/darwinday/2015 for photos, stories, and more.
The Secular Student Alliance is working with the Interfaith Youth Core to put on a webinar about engaging non-religious students in interfaith initiatives March 17th at 1:00 pm EST. How are Atheist, Agnostic, Secular Humanist, and “spiritual but not religious” students finding community on campus? How is this demographic engaged in matters of value and worldview orientation? In what ways can staff and faculty allies be hospitable and welcoming to these students, particularly around inclusive language and shared activities? Join this conversation, led by staff members from the Secular Student Alliance and the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), to engage in these core ideas. This event is also sponsored by the NASPA Spirituality & Religion in Higher Education Knowledge Community and the ACPA Commission for Spirituality, Faith, Religion, and Meaning.

This Sunday, February 22nd, is National Day of Solidarity for Black Nonbelievers, which we are promoting to our affiliates. We have copies of the film Contradiction (a film on black atheism and churches) available for our affiliates (with screening rights) - for Black History Month!
