Outreach at Summer in the City

June 14 @ 11:00 am - June 16 @ 6:00 pm

In 2016, HAAM members set up our first Outreach booth at the Summer in the City Festival in Steinbach, and it was an overwhelming success. Beginning at that first booth, non-believers living in the Bible belt of Manitoba have been able to find each other and have since formed their own social and support group in the area.

In just 3 short years, that small group has grown and flourished, to the point where they have now formally established themselves as the Eastman Humanist Community (EHC), and hold regular meetings and social events.

This year, the EHC will entirely take over running the Humanist outreach booth at Summer in the City. This is no small feat for them – in addition to having enough members to staff the booth, there needs to be enough people who are willing to be seen publicly as non-believers. In conservative Christian communities, non-believers who are outed can face bullying and discrimination at school, at work, and in social and family circles. So kudos to all the intrepid volunteers from the EHC who will be staffing that booth!

HAAM will still be involved, sharing equipment and providing back-up support and assistance, but the majority of the volunteers will be from the EHC.

If you’re out enjoying Steinbach’s Summer in the City Festival this June, be sure to stop at the Humanist outreach booth to chat and offer your support. It’ll be worth the trip!
