How should non-religious kids handle discrimination by believers? It’s very tough to be a student who doesn’t stand for the Pledge, doesn’t meet at the flagpole for prayers, or opposes the moment of silence in public schools.
Enter Hemant Mehta, a high school math teacher and outspoken atheist activist. He has seen first hand how young nonbelievers struggle for the same validation given automatically to their religious peers. Mehta will be at Reason in the Rock to talk about his most recent book, the Young Atheist’s Survival Guide: Helping Secular Students Thrive.
Hemant Mehta is an author, blogger, and atheist activist who gained fame for selling his soul on eBay. Mehta is a regular speaker at atheist events and has sat on the boards of charitable organizations such as the Secular Student Alliance and the Foundation Beyond Belief. His popular blog, the Friendly Atheist, can be found on Patheos.com.
He’ll be speaking and signing books March 14, 2015 at Reason in the Rock, and will attend the after-party to meet attendees. Don’t miss the excitement – register today!
