March Program - We Are In It to Win

By Judy Fontana

Our speaker on March 15th is Roy Speckhardt , Executive Director of the American Humanist Association (AHA). Roy has served as the Executive Director of AHA since 2005, and he is a frequent media commentator who has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, Fox News and NPR. Roy also serves on the boards of The Institute for Humanist Studies, the United Coalition of Reason, The Humanist Institute, and the Secular Coalition for America Education Fund. He writes a regular column for The Huffington Post and Patheos.

Roy holds an M.B.A. from George Mason University and a B.A. in sociology from Mary Washington College. He currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Roy will address HSSB on the topic of "We are in it to win,” which is in reference to the stance of the AHA in defending the Separation of Church and State in the courts of the land with vigor and more exposure.

Accompanying Roy, and also speaking with us, will be his wife, Maggie Ardiente, who is the Director of Outreach and Communication of AHA. Maggie is a former board member of the Secular Student Alliance and is a current board member of The Humanist Institute.
