This event occurs on the Fourth Tuesday of each month except December.

We will be in Walt Whitman Room. Entrance is on 9th St SE. Elevator access available. Overflow room available in case of higher turnout to ensure all attendees receive adequate opportunities to participate.

Cafe Inquiry is our monthly casual get-together to meet people and discuss topics of science and humanism.

This month's discussion: Bullying

• Why is there so much attention to bullying of late?

• Is there more or less bullying in recent years, or the same as previously?

• What does bullying say about our society? Other societies?

• Do secular humanist/atheist people exhibit less, more, or the same kinds of bullying  behavior than other segments of society? 

• Do secular humanist/atheist people have anything unique to add to the national conversation about bullying? 

• Is bullying universal?

• Is bullying part of “human nature”?

• Why do people become bullies?

• Are there better/worse ways of handling bullying?

• Are kids more suicidal in response to bullying than previously?

• Does attention to bullying have to do with increasing acceptance of gay people?

• Does the internet exacerbate bullying or simply provide a new outlet for an age-old behavior?

No outside food or drink allowed. Free and open to the public.

We are also planning to go out for food and/or drinks afterwards.
