The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers doubled its efforts for 2013, and doubled the size of the conference. We raised funds with a Giant Godless Garage Sale (and sold a lot of books about religion!) and an Indiegogo campaign. More than 300 people attended the two-day celebration of secularism, skepticism, and science and listened to 18 presenters from all over the United States, plus a panel of leaders of the secular movement locally and nationwide on secularism in Arkansas. Check out their videos linked below.
