FFRF Metro Denver Chapter April Meeting
Tuesday April 8th at 6:30 PM
Secular Hub 3100 Downing #C, Denver, CO

"Sweat the Small Stuff: Why we must challenge every breach of Jefferson's wall, no matter how small"

Does it really matter if the President says "so help me god," in his oath of office? Is "in God we trust" worth fighting? Is challenging a nativity scene on public property important? Andrew Seidel argues, absolutely. The separation of state and church guaranteed by our First Amendment is one of the most important freedoms we have. We must defend the "wall of separation" against all incursions, even those that seem unimportant. Seidel will leave plenty of time for your most challenging questions.

ANDREW SEIDEL graduated cum laude from Tulane University with a B.S. in neuroscience and environmental science and magna cum laude from Tulane University Law School, where he was awarded the Haber J. McCarthy Award for excellence in environmental law. In May of 2011, Andrew completed his Master of Laws at Denver University Sturm College of Law with a 4.0 GPA and was awarded the Outstanding L.L.M. Award. He joined the FFRF staff as a constitutional consultant in November 2011.

December 28 -- Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque

Dan Barker, Co-President of FFRF, will be in Albuquerque to present "An Atheist Musical Holiday" sponsored by the Albuquerque chapter of FFRF on Saturday, December 28. This will be their quarterly Meet 'n Greet event in Botts Hall at the Special Collections Library (423 Central Ave. NE) at 1:00 p.m.

Dan promises to bring a little something for every freethinker. His music is fun and sometimes inspirational, but adapted to our skepticism and outright rejection of religions. This will be our Winter Solstice Meet'n Greet event, an opportunity to meet more freethinkers, atheists, and humanists and to hear the latest on hot topics like the FFRF response to church/state violations and church activism in public schools and government. Join us for snacks, music, and good conversation, too. We will premier our own video short and highlight our billboard campaign. There is no charge for this event, but donations are welcomed.

Joining FFR-ABQ as an official member (only $10) might be the most important thing you do in this time of increasing threats to freedom and prosperity from over-zealous religious leaders. Our nation is seriously divided - mostly over religion-based issues.

Contact Ron Herman at [email protected] or join their group at Meetup.com to learn more.
