And that name is SoJo Cal, or the Calgary Social Justice Conference. We are currently in the process of creating it’s logo. We also have a few tentative speakers. Four people have let us know that they’d like to speak, and we have a few more people that we’d like to invite to speak.
We also have a few workshop ideas. The first would be on being a good feminist and the second would be about trans* activism. We are hoping to run a few more workshops, so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Our conference is on the intersection between atheism/freethought and different types of social justice, namely feminism and LGBT activism, but also interfaith activism. The goal is to get people thinking about how we can make the world a better place, and encourage people to think about how different groups can work together to accomplish that goal.
We are also still looking for donations. If you’d like to help us out, you can find our Go Fund Me page here: http://www.gofundme.com/ey9uy4. All donations are greatly appreciated.
