Hi <<First Name>>,

This week, we interview a Humanist chaplain who once performed a wedding to settle a family feud.

Learn how you can help the Iowa CoRs protest the Family Leadership Summit, and see the protest of a first grader in Ohio that went viral.

You can also help CoRs in US states that are fighting the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage.

And learn which famous atheists attended a nontheist rock concert in San Diego!
