Congressman Pete Stark represented California’s East Bay for forty years. A national leader on healthcare and progressive causes, Stark crafted the Affordable Care Act and also authored COBRA, EMTALA, and the Stark Laws, all landmark medical reforms.

In 2008 he became the first Congressman to openly identify as a non-theist, and received the Humanist of the Year award from theAmerican Humanist Association.

Rep Stark will be discussing progressive politics, the relationship between religion and government, and how young people can engage in a changing political landscape.

Come join us: Thursday November 7th at 7pm in Harkness Hall 100 Wall Street.

And make sure to RSVP on Facebook!  This event is open to the public.

Yale Humanists Co-Sponsor ‘Do a 180’ with Chaplain’s Office

Twice a month the Yale Chaplain’s Office hosts a Do a 180 event to bring Yale students out to local New Haven soup kitchens for 180 minutes, or three hours, of community service.

On November 15th the Yale Humanist Community will be sponsoring a Do a 180 to the Fellowship Place, a local “socialization program for psychiatric patients discharged from state hospitals”.  Volunteers from the Yale Humanist Society will join volunteers from other religious Yale student clubs in preparing and serving food and leading a trivia game for residents.

To volunteer please contact the YHS at HumanistYalies@gmail.com.   Spot are very limited and open only to Yale students.  For more information please email Maytal Saltiel in the Chaplains Office at Maytal.Saltiel@yale.edu.

Please meet at the Chaplain’s Office (Bingham Hall, Old Campus) at 2pm on November 15th.
