SSA East Annual Conference
This is the last week to register for the conference! You'll need to register by July 7th if you want guaranteed access as well as housing and catering to our conference in Columbus. SSA West was already a big hit and we're expecting SSA East to be an even bigger hit. Don't miss out!
We also have some leftover Vegas t-shirts from SSA West. If you missed your chance to have one, you're in luck! Email us to see if we have your size available and for ordering details.
Meet Your New Regional Campus Organizers
The SSA's Campus Organizing is expanding! Our new Regional Campus Organizers (RCOs) Ellen Lundgren, David Fitzgerald and Jessika Griffin officially start today! Our Regional Program has been such a success that we've decided to expand it.
Ellen, our former intern, is the new Texas RCO. You may email her at email@example.com. David, who is also on our Speakers Bureau is the RCO for both California and Nevada. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally Jessika will be overseeing the Illinois, Kentucky and Indiana region. You can contact her at email@example.com.
Check out a little more about our new staff here. You may also order David's book NAILED: Ten Christian Myths that Show Jesus Never Existed at All from our store (if you have your login). You can also email us if you prefer.
Repealing the Rest of DOMA
Representative Jarrold Nadler and Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced bills in their respective chambers, that would completely overturn DOMA on June 26th. If made law, they will strike down the 2nd Provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, making states recognize all marriages from any other state. If you want to encourage your representatives to support the bill, you can find their contact information at the House or Senate sites. Our friends at the American Humanist Association also created a form which allows you to email your House Representative and two Senators simultaneously.
Brag It Up!
