Hi, all! I have some speaking gigs coming up soon — including at this weekend’s 2015 Secular Student Alliance Annual Conference in Columbus, OH, where I’m being given an award! I’m receiving the inaugural Ambassador Award, given to the Secular Student Alliance donor who best serves as a champion for the organization. Such an ambassador repeatedly and widely shares why the Secular Student Alliance matters and is worthy of passionate support with as many people as possible. I’m also giving a talk there on Activism Burnout: Prevention and Treatment, and I’m moderating a panel discussion on LGBT Activism Beyond Same-Sex Marriage. It’s going to be a busy weekend!
Plus I have other gigs coming up in Manteca CA; San Juan Puerto Rico; and Winnipeg Manitoba. Details are below. If you’re in or near any of these cities, I hope to see you there!

SUMMARY: One of the most important keys to the success of the atheist movement is keeping activists engaged for the long haul. But the most inspired and motivated activists are often the ones most likely to eventually burn out. What are some practical strategies for preventing burnout — and for managing it when it happens? And how can activists support each other in not burning out?
