Join FFRF at the 2016 National Convention

Time is winding down to FFRF’s 39th annual convention!

With a roster full of great speakers, this year’s convention is sure to please. Such freethinking dignitaries as Lawrence Krauss, Susan Jacoby, Daniel Dennett and Jerry Coyne highlight the Oct. 7–9 convention in the great city of Pittsburgh.

Recently added to the speakers’ list is Nadia Duncan, who took first place in FFRF’s college essay contest for persons of color. Read her essay on Page 12 of this issue. She was awarded $3,000 by FFRF.

Friday night will begin with opening remarks and music by FFRF Co-Presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker. Then FFRF will honor a deserving candidate for the inaugural Henry H. Zumach Freedom From Fundamentalism Award before commencing with the evening’s speakers.

On Saturday, you’ll have the opportunity to get books signed by Jacoby, Coyne and Barker prior to the banquet dinner. After dinner, there will be a drawing for “clean” money, followed by a brief concert at the piano by Barker, and the evening will conclude with Dennett’s keynote speech.

Register today! FFRF’s block of rooms will not be held past Sept. 12. See “Hotel info” below for more information on lodging.

We can’t wait to see you in Pittsburgh!
