We were pleased to welcome Kazi Ahmed Habib, winner of HumanistsMN’s first Paul Heffron Scholarship for Secular Students, to our February Community Gathering. Kazi, a Muslim born in Bangladesh, told us about his journey to atheism and position as head of the Mavericks Alliance for Secular Students (MASS) at Minnesota State University, Mankato. He shook hands with Paul Heffron, our founding member, after whom the scholarship is named.
Several other MASS students attended the event. After the discussion, participants headed across the street from the meeting venue, the Frogtown Community Center, to pose with a new HMN billboard, one of two promoting separation of religion and government that will be up through mid-May.
