Title of Presentation: New Initiatives: What UnitedCoR Can Do for You
Date & Time: Friday, May 31 1:00 pm
Location: Mission Bay Ballroom
Presentation Summary: UnitedCoR, the United Coalition of Reason, is launching exiting new initiatives this year. In addition to its nationally famous billboard and bus ad campaigns, designed to help nontheistic people find sympathetic groups in their local communities, it will now turn its attention outward. That is, UnitedCoR will begin to put the spotlight on prejudice against people in the community of reason and on wasteful, non-charitable spending by leading local religious organizations. A panel of CoR leaders will add their commentary.
