Human Rights Activists Defends "Witchcraft" Children: Speaks - July 15th

After almost 4 years of trying, we finally get the chance to host the heroic human rights and child advocate Leo Igwe. Leo will be speaking on July 15th. The program will offer us the chance to hear harrowing challenges and on-going success stories. We'll also have the opportunity to understand our own part in "what's next?". 

 

Who:

Leo Igwe's work covers key areas of interest to us all. He's been doing social justice work for almost 15 years. He'll speak on the link between human rights, civil liberties, health, education and development. The link between skeptical reason, practical activism and social justice is an ongoing project you’re invited to join in. He's in NYC for only one day. Let's turn out to welcome him.

 

Details & RSVP - CFI-NYCFaceBookAtheist Nexus

 

What:

The problems of child abuse, neglect, trafficking and suffering are well known. What is less well known is one of the causes is superstition, irrational tradition and a lack of science-based health care and education. This cripples communities and costs lives.

 

Now there is action that changes lives; rescuing these children from abandonment, stigmatization, mind-numbing abuse, and even murder. They are children (and adults, mostly women, often widows) who’ve been accused of witchcraft and demon possession. They suffer a loss of human rights, human dignity and hope. 

 

Secular Humanist, skeptic and child advocate Leo Igwe is changing things. He has survived slander, harassment by politicians and police, multiple assaults, imprisonment, home invasions and hospitalizing attacks on his family members. His property has been stolen. His father was blinded, losing an eye. He lives under ongoing threats. Yet he continues to risk all and tell the truth for those who's stories would otherwise have no rational witness.

2013 NYC Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers

The Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers (DoS) is held annually on the final weekend in February. Nonbelievers use this day as an opportunity to build genuine communal relationships and launch a wave of activism among non-theists of color. The DoS event is also an effort to bring out closeted nonbelievers and let them know that they are not alone.

 

The event is Free and open to the public.  ALL are Welcome.

Program - 

Ayanna Watson of Black Atheists of America has sparked a project focusing on the diversity of careers within the secular community. The project includes photographic portraits and some personal testimony about work experience, passion and aspiration.

Ayanna will introduce some of the project’s participants. There will be the chance to ask questions and share stories, including your own. 

 

Seon M. LewisThe Spice Island Atheist and one of the voices of Caribbean Atheists, is a consistent Harlem Community member many of us know from his sharp observations, broad knowledge and warm easygoing style. He recently completed the book “From Mythology to Reality: Moving Beyond Rastafari”. His liberating intellectual journey from theism, through mystical Afrocentrism, to reasoned non-theism is one of following the evidence to where it leads. 

Seon will share how he came to write his book, which challenges  pseudo-history and false assumptions about a vital resistance culture. It also looks at how an inspiring rebel community can fall pray to sexism, racism, homophobia and xenophobia. The way he respectfully engages family and community in a conversation about mythology and fiction vs. reality and facts is an informative one. How to be Afrocentric without drowning in the dogma of Afrocentrism, or any “...ism” including our own, is part of what he’ll share.

Comment by Bwambale Robert on October 6, 2011 at 2:11am

Hello Smith,

thanks for being concerned to let as more people know about my school project. Its doing fine and to clear the air get to know that the school is run by Kasese United Humanist Association, a CBO registered, also the school has been accredited to operate , see the operation permit.http://kaseseunitedhumanist.webs.com/officialdocuments.htm

There is still a lot we people can do here as a big percentage of our people are still in the bondage of belief in Magic & Superstition, this is bad for Africa and i am optimistic the school project will generate a breed of free thinkers and scientists in future. The presence of our organization  helps people to know more about Humanism, free thought which actually the locals have loved so much.

I might be having lots of enemies especially religious faithfuls but all i explain i am not at war with religion but enlightening people about living good without any attachment to beliefs in magics,supernaturals,spirits etc.

In case you happen to come to africa, make it a priority to visit us in Kasese and perhaps inform the world to set up ventures in the name of free thought.

Yours in free thought,

Bwambale robert
