If you’re in New York City this weekend, there are two great atheist events going down!
First, on Saturday the 27th, the Blackout Secular Rally is happening in Flushing Meadows – Corona Park from 1:30 to 6:00. (I’ve seen different webpages say it starts either at 12:00 or at 1:30, but the official Facebook event page says 1:30, so I’m going with that.) Sponsored by Black Nonbelievers and Black Atheists of America, it’s the first atheist rally that will prominently feature nontheists of color.
Then, on Sunday the 28th at 12:30, the second Sunday Assembly NYC is returning to Tobacco Road in Manhattan. They’ll be hosting Matthew Chapman, the great-great grandson of Charles Darwin. I had a great time at the first one, and there’s every reason to hope that they can repeat their success.
I’m going to be at both of these, so if you’re planning to attend, feel free to leave a comment and say hi!
