Humanism in the Age of Trump

First Unitarian Church of Providence
Connecticut attorney and humanist activist Dan Blinn presents an interesting talk about how humanism can operate in the era of President Donald Trump.
Dan’s presentation focuses on what it means to be a humanist in America when so many of the administration’s values are antithetical to humanist values; how humanists can find common ground and mutual respect when interacting with Trump supporters; and how humanists can find purpose and fulfillment in the face of Trumpism.
Dan Blinn is a humanist organizer, activist, and speaker. He is the founding president of Hartford Area Humanists and one of the founding co-chairs of Connecticut Coalition of Reason https://ctcor.org/ of which HAC is also a charter member organization. Dan was recently recognized by the American Humanist Association for his work as a humanist activist and organizer when he was presented with the AHA’s President’s Award at the Annual AHA Conference in May in Las Vegas. A graduate of the Humanist Institute, Blinn is also an attorney who handles consumer protection matters on behalf of consumers.
