We are proud to present one of the most diverse line-ups of speakers of any atheist, freethought, or secular convention. We bring together speakers with stories you haven’t yet heard, rising stars within our community, and unique perspectives on the most important issues of the day.

Our keynote speaker is Jim Obergefell, a self-described “accidental activist,” who took his fight for equality to the Supreme Court with the landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that resulted in victory for marriage equality.



Pre-convention social events, workshops, and activist training will begin on Thursday, April 18. Speakers and main stage presentations will kick off on Friday, April 19 at 10:00 AM and continue to Sunday, April 21 at 3:00 PM.

Throughout the weekend, you will be able to attend a number of special events, including a live God Awful Movies show, pub quiz, awards dinner, and VIP reception. We hope you’ll join us in Cincinnati for a weekend of activism and community!



American Atheists Convention attendees will receive a special discounted room price of just $105 per night!
