Platform: The Young Atheist’s Survival Guide by Hemant Mehta

Nearly a third of Americans under the age of 30 have no religious affiliation, the highest in any recorded generation. In this growing segment of “nones” are many young atheists who have faced prejudice in their high schools and communities for standing up for their constitutional right of freedom from religion. In this talk, Hemant Mehta will share stories of students who have fought for their rights, sometimes at tremendous personal cost, and how we can help make things better for them, regardless of our age or religious affiliation.
