The Next Right Thing 2017 - Inauguration Day of Dissent

  • When: Friday, January 20, 2017 @ 3:30 am
  • Congo Square, Armstrong Park, New Orleans, LA view map

It is proposed that everyone get together on Inauguration Day and celebrate, through political street theater, open, artistic, and creative dissent, and some truly epic good times, the fact that we are not like "them". The goals are to air grievances, network with like minded people, and to lay a foundation for future resistance. 

The Next Right Thing will be a uniquely New Orleans demonstration of joyful resistance and ruthless satire designed to put the nation and the world on notice that we are still here and that we will resist. Good people of good will enjoying good music, good art, and good times. Happy warriors!

The purpose of this event is to share ideas, organize, and build a mass demonstration worthy of our colorful heritage. Invite people to join us who you believe will contribute to the success of the action and who can bring additional groups into the coalition.

Be prepared to engage in a Day of Dissent channeling the spirit and satire of Mardi Gras aimed directly at the new regime and the insanely irresponsible government it is installing. 

Come to Congo Square and be part of the experience!


Secular Humanism 2017: Where Do We Go From Here?

  • When: Saturday, January 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am
  • Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 Saint Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA view map

There's a new sheriff in town and it looks like things are going to change around here, right? Since our monthly meeting falls on the weekend of the Presidential Inauguration, we thought it would be helpful to focus on letting everyone talk about how secular humanism will respond on a personal, local and national basis to the changes coming from a new administration.

This will be a group conversation, so everyone is encouraged to attend whether or not you wish to contribute to the dialogue. 

IMPORTANT: We are NOT meeting in our usual space at the Jefferson Public Library this month. We have a room at the Loyola Uptown campus: Monroe 152 

NOSHA meetings are free and open to the public.

Darwin Day 2017 - Meet and Greet Some Primates!

  • When: Sunday, February 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am
  • Monkey Hill Bar, 6100 Magazine St. , New Orleans, LA view map

Since we can't compete with Mardi Gras parade season this year, we thought we'd throw in a social event to celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday and we're right on the money! It's a chance to stop by, pop in and groom your fellow primates.

We'll have birthday cake and you can buy drinks from the bar (including non-alcoholic, so don't let the location keep you from coming by.) It will be a low-key affair with a friendly "open house" feel. 

Come and go as you are. And if you're lucky, you might even evolve a little!
