This is Major Tom to Ground Control, I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way, And the stars look very different today
We are back today with the second part of our Moonbase Tour! Today we get to visit the Moonbase COCOI Workshop Room!
In this Room we have Seven Amazing Workshops starting at 10:00 AM on Friday of Skepticon! Lets take a look shall we?
[learn_more caption=”Surviving Online Harassment”] Hosted by Stephanie Zvan “It doesn’t take much these days. Talk to the “”wrong”” person on Twitter. Promote the “”wrong”” blog post. Even tweet from the “”wrong”” conference hashtag. Suddenly you find yourself being inundated with responses from belligerent questions to outright abuse. Now what do you do? Let’s talk about what you can expect in this situation, how much control you have, and where to find the support you may need.”[/learn_more]

[learn_more caption=”Think you don’t need community? Think again!”] Hosted by Helen Stringer Religion shouldn’t have a monopoly over organized community on Sundays. The church has efficiently built communities spanning the globe, the secular community can learn from that, and can do it even better. The “nones” are a rapidly growing demographic, and secular people are becoming more visible and less reticent. It’s time for them to band together, get to know one another, and stop being sidelined because they don’t do church. By attending this workshop, you will learn more about the Oasis community concept and how you can help start one in your city.[/learn_more]
[learn_more caption=”Atheist Women in Politics”] Hosted by Amanda Knief There is no better way to get women’s issues moving forward in state legislatures and Congress than through direct representation. Let’s talk about the whys and hows of getting more atheist women elected to public office.[/learn_more]

[learn_more caption=”Mental Health Service Provision for the Skeptically Inclined”] Hosted by Dwight Panozzo Obtaining beneficial assistance for emotional distress can be a difficult challenge for skeptics, agnostics, and atheists, particularly in more theistically dominated regions of the country. This roundtable discussion for consumers and providers offers a venue to discuss the clinical and social justice strategies associated with more successful outcomes. Preliminary data from Dr. Panozzo’s qualitative research in the field will be introduced, as needed, to further the discussion.[/learn_more]
[learn_more caption=”Private Screening: Obvious Child”] Hosted by Becca Thomas For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her hysterical and relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna winds up unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand, she is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time. Donna’s drunken hookup – and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment – turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
