Human Rights Activists Speaks @ NY Ethical Culture - 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.

Judge says harassment and bullying not a human rights violation.


Court: Human Rights Law Doesn't Cover Public School Students
New York's highest court ruled that the state's Human Rights Law does not protect students against harassment and discrimination in public schools.

As a result of today's ruling by the state Court of Appeals, these students are now denied access to the law's comprehensive protections.

Acting morally does not require belief in a god.

Comment by Harlem Humanists on February 24, 2012 at 12:27pm

The NYC event for the Day of Solidarity for Black Non-Believers will be in Harlem. In fact the next closes promoted events are in D.C and Philadelphia. So this is serving the whole Tri-State (NY,NY & CT) area.

 

We're putting a special twist on our usual Mind Food + "Soul Food" combo. The details will interest you!

CFI-Harlem/Harlem Humanists will be gathering on Sunday February 26th to celebrate Day of Solidarity for Black Non-believers. This is a time to get together and enjoy bright minds and warm personalities. There's a noble story of freethought from within the African American and Pan-African tradition. This is a chance to connect with this tradition and each other. We'll begin at 1pm. The place is 583 Riverside Dr. in the "Brick Room". It's free. Just e-mail (harlem@centerforinquiry.net) or call (646-820-CFIH) for all the details." RSVP if you can.

See you there. Regardless, please share this in the next two days with all you think will be interested.

Distrust Feeds Anti-Atheist Prejudice - Miller-McCune
Research finds atheists are widely perceived as untrustworthy, which may be a factor in why they're disliked more than other minorities.

http://www.miller-mccune.com/.../distrust-powers-anti-atheist-preju...

"People use cues of religiosity as a signal for trustworthiness," the researchers write in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Given that “trustworthiness is the most valued trait in other people,” this mental equation engenders a decidedly negative attitude toward nonbelievers.

There is no actual evidence backing up the assumption that atheism somehow leads to a decline in morality. In a 2009 study, sociologist Phil Zuckerman argued that "a strong case could be made that atheists and secular people actually possess a stronger or more ethical sense of social justice than their religious peers," adding that they, on average, have "lower levels of prejudice, ethnocentrism, racism and homophobia" than the much larger population of believers.
