July 25, 2016 Newsletter

Last week, the Prince George Citizen published an incredible article about the Ness Lake Bible Camp.

It documents how the camp censors third party groups who rent the facility from speaking in support of LGBTQ equality. The camp has also barred one of its Christian volunteers from returning because of pro-LGBTQ Facebook posts.

The public school district is now considering whether to terminate its relationship with the camp. Local schools often rented the facility for year end activities.

It's a well written and thorough piece that highlights the concerns we continue to have with religion's influence on our school system. Going forward we'll be there to continue to support secular schools in BC.

Vancouver Pride Parade & Dyke March

Join us on Sunday, July 31 as we once again march in the annual Vancouver Pride Parade in support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.

This year, in addition to our ever-growing marching contingent, we'll have a table at the Pride Festival on Sunset Beach.

You can RSVP and find full staging details on our websiteFacebook or Meetup. There will also be some Humanists marching in the Dyke March on Saturday, July 30.
