Roy Zimmerman: Satirical Songster Dude

Event: Special Event - Concert at HSGP

March 07th, 2015 6:00 pm - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa, AZ 85201

Roy Zimmerman sings satirical songs - original songs about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war and greed.

There's a decidedly Lefty slant to his lyrics. "We used to have a name for Right Wing satire," he says. "We called it 'cruelty.'"

The Los Angeles Times says, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."

Tom Lehrer himself says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don't just 'rhyne.'"

Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."

In twelve albums over twenty years and on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. And everywhere Zimmerman goes, the Starving Ear goes with him.

Sponsored by Americans United for Separation of Church & State Greater Phoenix, FFRF Valley of the Sun, and the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix.

Free and open to the public. Donations welcome.

Evocations: What moves you? (Part 2)

Event: Humanities Project Monthly Cultural Presentation & Meeting

March 13th, 2015 7:00 pm - Friday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

By popular demand, we are bringing Evocations back for those who didn't get the chance to share the first time!

Evocations: What moves you?

Evocations. What evokes emotions in you? A certain song? A particular painting? A book? A letter? A poem? A movie or video? A place?

Which feelings are stirred? Love, anger, shame, sadness, patriotism, pride, fear, joy? These are but a few.

And why? Do you even know?

We invite you to come with one or more examples of whatever affects you emotionally and share it with us. Here is a list of possibilities, but don't feel limited by it:
• Music or other audio - cd or thumb drive - or bring your instrument!
• Any printed matter - books, letters, print-outs, etc.
• Artwork - original piece, print or photo - thumb drive
• Photos - originals and/or on thumb drive

We will have a cd player and a computer that we will hook up to the audio-visual equipment.

Feel free to bring more than one item. We will make sure everyone gets to share once, and if time permits, we can go around again.

If you just can't think of anything, or are too shy, no worries! Come anyway and enjoy what others have to share.

Hosted by Zenaido & Jennifer

BYOB, snacks and beverages to share always welcome!

The HSGP Humanities Project holds free and open meetings on the 2nd Friday of each month at 7pm at HCC. The majority of the evening is given over to one or more of our HSGP members or guests, to share with us some aspect of arts & humanities that they are passionate about!

Underwater Dreams, Film and Special Guest Cristian Arcega, Q&A

Speaker: Film and Special Guest Cristian Arcega

April 05th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Underwater Dreams, written and directed by Mary Mazzio, and narrated by Michael Peña, is an epic story of how the sons of undocumented Mexican immigrants learned how to build an underwater robot from Home Depot parts. And defeat engineering powerhouse MIT in the process.

This is a local story. It happened 10 years ago at Carl Hayden High School in west Phoenix. These are the Dreamers who--with no money, experience, or documents--managed to win, beating the elite MIT robotics team with their robot, Stinky.

“The awards-worthy “Underwater Dreams” is by turns rousing and heartbreaking, and organically touches on important social issues” – Michael Ordoña, The San Francisco Chronicle.

Cristian Arcega, one of the Dreamers from the celebrated robotics team, will join us for the film viewing and Q&A.

Cristian is using crowd sourcing to raise money to be able to achieve his Electrical Engineering Degree. He already has the smarts. His dream is to start up an electronics business. Our short-sighted Arizona legislators require that Dreamers pay out-of-state tuition, making it all but impossible to pay for a college education. To read his story, go to Cristian Arcega: A Dream to Build. Please consider a donation.

Also, you can help support the robotics team at Carl Hayden High School at Donate Falcon Robotics. Contributions are eligible for Arizona Education Tax Credit.

Doors open at 9:00am for optional breakfast ($5 donation) and socializing.

UMOM New Day Center

Event: Service Outreach

September 26th, 2015 9:00 am - Saturday


Location: Human Services Campus, 230 S 12th Ave, Phoenix

Tour/orientation starts at 9:00, volunteer hours begin at 9:30. I highly recommend a tour if you have not been there yet, so you can hear about all the amazing programs and services UMOM offers.

10-15 of us will be in the kitchen to prepare and serve brunch. Some of us may be tasked with some deep cleaning of the kitchen and dining room. If there are additional volunteers, there will be other activities available, such as helping to sort clothes, painting, or maintenance.

UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for families in the state of Arizona. Every night they provide safe shelter and supportive services for over 170 families through their continuum of services. They also offer nearly 300 units of affordable housing across the Valley.

Parking is available in the lot in front of the building.

Hosted by Michal Otten, who will be wearing a humanist/secular themed T-shirt.
