For over 15 years, SOFREE has been an active presence at the World Religions Conference (WRC) to speak to topics from secular perspectives. At this event, we Humanists get the opportunity to interact with people from diverse backgrounds, answer questions, dispel myths and misconceptions about secularism, atheism, and Humanism, and spark interest in rational thought. Our keynote speaker is SOFREE’s president, Katherine Dimou, a longtime licensed Humanist Officiant and past Humanist Canada Board Director. We will also read Humanist poetry aligned with the conference theme. Come by our table for Humanist goodies and conversation!
