FFRF’s 2021 Boston convention in limbo

Dear Members:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s plans for its 2021 national convention — scheduled for the weekend of Nov. 19–21 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston — remain in limbo.

FFRF, like everyone else in our nation, is awaiting pandemic mitigation developments, and hopes to know by summer whether a national convention will be safe and practical. Please continue to hold the date. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we are able to rely on the science.

The amazing roster still includes Margaret Atwood, Gloria Steinem, John Irving and a host of secular authors such as Katherine Stewart and Phil Zuckerman, activists such as Hispanic American Freethinkers’ founder David Tamayo and honorees such as Black Skeptics Los Angeles founder Sikivu Hutchinson. Newly announced speakers and honorees include New York Times court columnist Linda Greenhouse and singer/entertainer/actor John Davidson.

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.
