Women of Color Beyond Belief Annual Conference on Secular Social Justice 2022

Wocbb 2022 Speakers
CHICAGO - s4story -- Presented by Black Nonbelievers, the Black Skeptics Group, and the Women's Leadership Project, the Women of Color Beyond Belief Conference is the only national secular forum exclusively focused on the perspectives of women of color atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers and skeptics. The conference highlights the social justice work of women of color within the secular community, and provides an intersectional, unapologetically Black and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) feminist vision of leadership and activism in secularism. In light of white Christian nationalist backlash against reproductive rights, anti-racist education, and LGBTQI+ civil rights, the conference will directly address how BIPOC community organizing and education are changing the narrative of white mainstream secular advocacy. This year's conference will prominently feature Gen Z Black and Latinx secular women of color, who are a crucial part of the growing "Religious Nones" demographic shift among American youth.

Conference organizers Bria Crutchfield, Sikivu Hutchinson, and Mandisa Thomas state, "The Women of Color Beyond Belief team is committed to uplifting BIPOC secular feminist activism and organizing. The recent SCOTUS decision obliterating Roe, and the constitutionally protected right to abortion, will have a devastating impact on communities of color. As more women of color reject the fallacies of organized religion and faith-based dogma, it is critically important that their voices and lived experiences have a national platform."

Student and low-income attendee rates are available, and childcare will be available for the in-person event. Streaming options will also be provided for those who cannot attend in person.

The conference will also feature "Secure The Bag Part 2", a meal packing service project that will feed thousands of families in the Greater Chicago area. Co-sponsored by GO Humanity (https://gohumanity.world/), conference registration is not required to participate, but is strongly encouraged.
