Please join us as we talk with Emily Newman of the American Humanist Association about their program to outreach to nonreligious folks incarcerated in jails and prisons through a program called Humanism for All. Humanism For All aims to connect incarcerated people who identify as humanist, atheist, agnostic, or non-religious with the wider humanist movement by providing them with educational and community-building resources, opportunities to share their stories with other humanists, and in some instances, legal support when they don’t receive the same rights and privileges as their religious peers.

Emily Newman is the Education Coordinator of the American Humanist Association’s Center for Education. She manages the AHA's local groups, including prison chapters, and develops humanist learning opportunities online and in-person. She holds a BS in psychology and creative writing as well as an MA in professional writing from Carnegie Mellon University. Emily grew up in the Ethical Culture movement and previously worked for the American Ethical Union for about ten years. Over the years, she has assisted nonprofits and small businesses with social media, design, website development, and marketing.
