National Day of Reason at the State Capitol

  • Minnesota State Capitol 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd Saint Paul, Minnesota 55155 (map)

Minnesota humanist and advocacy groups will gather to observe the National Day of Reason, which honors the principles of secular government and separation of religion and state that have guided our country since its founding.

The event will include a continental breakfast and speeches by humanist leaders, legislators, activists, and David Schultz, professor of political science at Hamline University.

In Minnesota, we continue to witness the intrusion of religious ideology, and the denial of scientific knowledge, in critical areas including reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, climate change, vaccinations, medical aid in dying, religious displays in public schools, and cultural diversity.

Join Humanists of Minnesota, First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, and Or Emet Minnesota Congregation For Humanistic Judaism to remind lawmakers to uphold our secular government -- without favoring one religion over another or the religious over the nonreligious, as our Constitution mandates.

Please like the National Day of Reason - Minnesota Facebook page to get updates about this event. Participation is free but we will be issuing tickets shortly so we know how much food to order. Hope to see you there!
