Posted April 13, 2011

What an amazing conference! Over 450 humanists and atheists from as far as Norway were gathered in Boston to celebrate 70 years of humanism and the American Humanist Association. We’re grateful to all the leaders, speakers, awardees, volunteers, and local chapters that helped make this year’s conference our best ever. If you couldn’t make it to Boston, we hope to see you at our 71st Annual Conference in New Orleans in June 2012!
