Replacing Religious Institutions with Compelling Secular Alternatives

September 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Born and raised in West Hartford, CT, Isaac is a senior at the University of Southern California, where he studies Philosophy, Politics, & Law, with minors in Economics and Spanish. At USC, he leads Novus Think Tank, a home base for creative problem-solvers tackling issues like educational equity, political polarization, and access to mental health resources. He also leads the Secular Student Fellowship, a community of nonreligious students exploring how to live purposefully from a humanist perspective. In addition, he collaborates with the USC Office of Religious and Spiritual Life as the Student Coordinator of Belonging to facilitate a culture of authentic connection among the student body.

Isaac will explore what we can learn from strategic communication, empathy, and behavioral insights to redesign religious systems with compelling secular alternatives.

Heretic House is a Victorian mansion that’s over 100 years old found in the renowned Angelino Heights neighborhood. Look for the Atheists United signage and come around the side entrance to enjoy the presentation in the backyard.

Children’s programming will be available so feel free to bring the whole family!

Our meetings are held outdoors with minimal shade, so please dress according to the weather.

Street parking available, but can be limited. We highly recommend public transportation for practical and environmental reasons :)

Also on the agenda:  NOMINATIONS.  President, Secretary, and three Directorships are available.  AND, if you’re a member of Atheists United, we’ll also be voting on approval of the updated bylaws.

If you have any questions please email one of our organizers at [email protected]
