2015 National Convention

Speakers

American Atheists is proud to present one of the most diverse line-ups of speakers of any atheist, freethought, or secular convention. Past keynotes have included: professional football player Chris Kluwe, philosopher A.C. Grayling, and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. 

In 2015, American Atheists was thrilled to welcome author, speaker, and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

We were also pleased to welcome special guests Susan Blackmore, Marshall Brain, and Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff (original cast members of Mystery Science Theater 3000) as well as more than 30 other confirmed speakers.
