This forum will focus on the intersection of Black identity, gender politics, LGBTQI+ issues, and secular humanism. How do Black Gen Z secular humanists navigate racism, sexism, homophobia, and religious bigotry in their life and work? Is the American secular humanist “movement” relevant to Black youth? If so, what issues do Black Gen Z youth believe this movement should be focusing on, given the escalation of anti-blackness in American politics and higher education?
This event will feature youth from Black Skeptics Los Angeles‘ First in the Family Humanist scholarship program, which has provided support resources for first generation, foster care, undocumented, LGBTQI+, unhoused and secular youth of color since 2013.
