Location: Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd
On Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 1 p.m., a peaceful demonstration of solidarity will take place called the Atlanta March for Social Justice & Women. The march will rally members of underrepresented communities, women, and their allies from across Georgia and the nation. The march will begin at the Center for Civil and Human Rights and will conclude at the Georgia State Capitol.
While an independent movement, the Atlanta March for Social Justice & Women event is officially recognized by the Women’s March on Washington D.C. to which tens of thousands of Americans have pledged their support.
The Atlanta March champions: immigrants of all statuses; Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, agnostic or atheist; Native and Indigenous people; individuals of African and Asian descent; Asian Pacific
Americans; Latinx people; those with disabilities; survivors of sexual violence; people who are economically impoverished; the LGBTQIA communities; and women. Our march will amplify the voices of these communities by embodying and supporting work that defeats and eliminates human trafficking; advocates for the right to clean water, clean air and environmental justice; holds accountable law enforcement in cases of police brutality, and other issues relevant to creating a just and equitable society.

There is no God. Now what? If this is the only life we have, how does that affect how we live our lives, how we treat each other, and cope with death. As a follow-up to one of Kickstarter’s most successful publishing projects, photographer and filmmaker Chris Johnson introduces us to some of the many voices from his book. In this fascinating documentary — learn the stories behind the book in interviews with some of our greatest thinkers. Join Chris as he explores issues of joy & meaning and travels around the globe meeting people from all walks of life and backgrounds who challenge the false stereotypes of atheists as immoral and evil. From Daniel Dennett and A.C. Grayling, to Julia Sweeney and Robert Llewellyn —learn the various ways many atheists have left religion to a better life filled with love, compassion, hope, and wonder.
Join us for a viewing of this film, which will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker. There will be a suggested donation of $5 at the door, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
