Humanist Community Forum: The Religious Character of American Patriotism

When: Sunday, April 09 2017 @ 11:00 AM - - 12:15PM
Where: Humanist House
1180 Coleman Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110
Description: As we face a strongly divided nation, populated by those with opposing concepts of our national identity, history, and ideals, it's time to take an honest look at our traditions and answer some hard questions. Do we have a national religion after all? If so, exactly what is it? And where might it take us? This talk will explore often overlooked aspects of American culture, allow us to see ourselves as others see us, and thereby inform the choices we must make for our future.

Fred Edwords is director of planned giving for the American Humanist Association, an organization he served for fifteen years as executive director and twelve years as editor of its national magazine, The Humanist.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

This event is sponsored by Humanist Community in Silicon Valley
