October 2 — Taking Action to Keep Illinois Laws Secular (Virtual Events)


FFRF Co-President Dan Barker and FFRF Staff Attorney Ryan Jayne, in partnership with FFRF Metropolitan Chicago Area Chapter are hosting a virtual event for Illinois residents on Saturday, October 2 at 11:00 AM CDT via Zoom.

The presentation will focus specifically on Illinois Statute (720 ILCS 570/407), related to the inclusion of places of worship to the list of “drug-free zones” in Illinois.  Dan and Ryan will discuss the importance of keeping state and religion separate, and how non-believers can get involved to help repeal a church-centered Illinois state law that is contributing to mass incarcerations in Chicago and throughout the state.
