She has performed at countless conferences, conventions, events and rallies including the American Atheists National Convention, American Humanists Association Annual Conference, the Freedom From Religion Foundation National Convention, The Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne and both the 2012 and 2016 Reason Rallies where she shared the stage with Richard Dawkins, Eddie Izzard, Tim Minchin and Cara Santa Maria. She regularly supports the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and recently returned from a performance at their London Secular Conference.
