Pennsylvania State Atheist/Humanist 2013 Conference

Unity and Community

13 15 September 2013

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Our goal is to promote and connect as many local and national groups as possible. We also hope to attract as many people as possible to the non-theist community by offering an exciting program where people can meet, socialize and exchange ideas. The theme of the conference is: "Unity and Community."
