Common Ground Conference
Oct 8 @ 8:45 am – 6:00 pm

Common Ground 2015 is an all-day conference, FREE and open to the general public, that aims to bring together religious believers, secular humanists, and nonbelievers in conversation in order to gain perspective on each other’s ways of seeing the world, while embracing commonalities in our human experience that bring us together for social change. Through four panel sessions, workshops, and breakout sessions, attendees will hear academics and leaders from national and local organizations discuss views on finding meaning in life, ethics and values, and how to collaborate for social action.
Our vision and highest hope is that this event will culminate in social activism through interfaith organizations, tri-sector leadership, citizen activism, and more in any arena of social justice or “doing good” for the world.
