This week Allison Colberg, Director at the Micah Center will be joining us to talk about the local Grand Rapids immigrant communities, and current border/immigration controversies.

Members are welcome to propose and schedule a topic which would be of interest toward establishing a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values. Please contact us if you have a topic that you would like to discuss at an upcoming Café Inquiry.
