Monday, October 13, 7 pm, Goddard Chapel

Many Humanists affirm values of service and support, across lines of not only religious difference but international borderlines as well. But how can we most effectively engage in volunteerism? This Columbus Day, Monday, October 7 pm in Goddard Chapel, the Humanist Chaplaincy at Tufts wants to explore the critical challenges of international intervention and support, and challenge our inclinations towards what might be the best ways to go about building a better world. 

Conor Robinson is the founder of the Pathfinders Project, a forerunner to the Humanist Service Corps program he’s preparing to launch through the Foundation Beyond Belief. Join University Chaplaincy in Goddard Chapel as Conor gives a short talk on lessons he’s learned from his work with Pathfinders, followed by a conversation with Humanist in Residence Walker Bristol and an open Q&A from the audience. We’ll explore the ethical challenges of international volunteering, intersections with interfaith organizing, and what this idea of “Humanist service” means in our modern world.

Conor says: “My goal as a humanist activist is not just to draw humanists into service abroad, but to encourage all nonreligious folks to volunteer more effectively wherever they are.”  Refreshments will be served after the event. Click here for Facebook event.
