The Freedom From Religion Foundation is still waiting to make a determination about the safety and viability of hosting the 2021 convention in Boston, but FFRF is cautiously optimistic as more people become vaccinated from Covid-19.
The convention is scheduled for the weekend of Nov. 19-21 at the Boston Park Hotel.
FFRF hopes to make a decision by mid or late summer to know whether a national conference will be practical and safe. FFRF encourages you to hold that weekend open, and will let you know as soon as we know whether we can hold a post-pandemic “bash” this year!
The roster includes the incredible lineup of authors Margaret Atwood, Gloria Steinem, John Irving, Katherine Stewart and Phil Zuckerman, Hispanic American Freethinkers’ founder David Tamayo, New York Times court columnist Linda Greenhouse and Black Skeptics Los Angeles founder Sikivu Hutchinson. Unfortunately, entertainer John Davidson has backed out due to another obligation that has come up.
Look for updates and announcements in future issues of Freethought Today and on our website, ffrf.org/convo-2021.
We look forward to holding a post-pandemic celebratory bash with these powerhouse speakers and seeing you there, when it’s safe.
Please keep in mind future convention sites and dates: Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk, Oct. 28-30, 2022, and Monona Terrace Convention Center/Hilton Madison Monona Terrace, Oct. 13-15, 2023.
