A record crowd of 130 people attended our January Community Gathering featuring Bradley Onishi, co-host of the podcast Straight White American Jesus and author of the book Preparing for War: the Extremist History of White Christian Nationalism — and What Comes Next. A “Humanists and Friends” reception and book signing followed.
Onishi warned about the rising authoritarianism of Christian nationalists, who are often white supremacists as well. He urged audience members to pledge to do one thing this year to stand up for a “multiracial, multi-ethnic, and pluralist democracy.” The 2024 election, he said, “will shape the U.S. for a generation or longer.”
