Weekly Secular Forum: Equality, Islam, and Human Rights

Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 5:00pm

Building W20: Stratton Student Center, 450
84 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

This week, we will discuss the topics of the preceding Thursday evening's event with the Ex-Muslims of North America panel discussing Islam and human rights from an apostate perspective ( https://www.eventbrite.com/e/equality-islam-and-human-rights-tickets-39850796806 ). Attendance at said event is recommended, although participation is still welcome.

The Secular Society of MIT hosts weekly discussions on a variety of topics related to nontheism, skepticism, and secular humanism. Past discussion topics have included secular governance, using humor when discussing religion, secular perspectives on education, a humanistic view of morality, skepticism regarding popular health claims, and many more. By running these, we aim to provide a community space for nonbelievers to meet, make friends, discuss matters of collective concern, and stay informed and organized.

We provide free hot tea, hot chocolate, and assorted sweet and savory snacks to keep everyone's energy up.

Discussions are intended to last about an hour, but usually run over due to the copious enthusiasm. All interested in dialogue and learning are welcome to attend.

Location: W20-450 (4th floor, MIT Student Center, https://whereis.mit.edu/?go=W20)
