With many high-profile personalities (including Cecile Richards, Salman Rushdie, Adam Savage and Julia Sweeney) set to speak, FFRF’s convention in San Francisco from Nov. 2-4 is certain to be a great time.
But a word of caution: If you have yet to reserve your room at the Hyatt Regency, get on that right away. The original block of rooms FFRF reserved for our members filled quickly. An additional block of rooms has been made available, but those, too, are going fast. Don’t be left out! FFRF’s 41st annual convention will be held Nov. 2-4 at the Hyatt Regency, 5 Embarcadero Center.
The list of speakers for this year’s gathering is as long as it is impressive! Richards is the past president of Planned Parenthood, Rushdie is an acclaimed author, Savage was co-host of the poular TV show “Mythbusters,” and Sweeney is a comedian extraordinaire. Other speakers include U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman, who is one of the founders of the newly created Freethought Caucus, actor John de Lancie, activist Ensaf Haidar, comedian Leighann Lord, author Debra Deanne Olson, Ex-Muslims of North America co-founder Sarah Haider, and child author Bailey Harris.
But it’s more than just the speakers! On Friday, Nov. 2, FFRF will also be showing a late-night movie and Saturday morning features the “Non-Prayer Breakfast,” complete with the “moment of bedlam.”
It’s a weekend you won’t want to miss!
