Upcoming Secular Conferences

Congratulations to Thomas True, the new Coordinator for Greater St. Louis CoR! When we met with Thomas during the FreeOK conference in Tulsa, we learned that he was one of the key organizers for the Gateway to Reason conference in St. Louis. Thomas supported United CoR by advertising the conference, and within minutes of sending out a media advisory, the conference and Greater St. Louis CoR received media coverage! In addition to the regular conference speakers, Gateway to Reason included comedian Steve Hill, and filmmaker Jeremiah Camara, whose film Contradiction has inspired audiences to critically examine the role of the historical Black church.

If your local group is holding a large gathering, or if you know of conferences that could benefit from UnitedCoR’s help with media coverage, please let us know how we can help. Not only do we offer media advisories and press releases to help the conferences gain coverage, but we will also help advertise the event on our growing social media networks.
