Humanist Group Hosts Reason On The Hill Day at the Iowa State Capital
The Humanists of Linn County, the Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers and the Tri-State Humanists (Burlington) are happy to announce we are hosting Reason On The Hill Day at the Iowa State Capital Building on April 10, 2018 from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. We have reserved the entire rotunda for the day so that secular organizations and supporters may set up table displays and provide information about their organization. HLC and IAF welcomes all secular and nontheistic Iowans to the Reason on the Hill Day, as well as our religious allies who support our mission. You may come by yourself and meet others from your home area for your lobby visits. Families and groups are also welcome. Teens and other young adults are highly encouraged to attend and make their voices heard.
Additionally, HLC member Joe Stutler will be giving a secular invocation in the Senate Chambers at approximately 9:00 am.
In-person lobbying from constituents is still one of the most effective methods for reaching elected officials. Representation of secular and nontheistic Americans is still very low in our State House, so we need as many secular and nontheistic people to speak up and tell their elected officials that they are voting, paying attention to the issues, and showing who they are. Only by directly participating in the system can we hope to change it. Reason on the Hill Day is a great opportunity to meet with your elected officials and exercise your Rights!
Please RSVP ASAP so we can plan the logistics.

Please join us for our annual Memorial Day Picnic! This is a family friendly event with playground attached to the Open Shelter area. Parking is off of E 33rd across from Catholic church. There are two tennis courts and half basketball court nearby along with hiking trails.
The IAF will provide the charcoal, plates, cups and utensils. Please bring a dish to share and something for yourself to grill. Alcohol and glass containers are not permitted in the city park and this is truly a family friendly event. We have our monthly Happy Hours for that!
*My sincere apologies for the confusion as to which of the two shelters in Grandview Park that we have reserved. Either I misunderstood or was given incorrect information over the phone back at the beginning of March. Still the same park, but a different shelter. -Rory

This is our regular weekly Meetup. Please come and join us for an interesting discussion on a variety of topics. This week we will discuss the Pew Research Center’s new polling that reveals atheists make up 10% of the US population and 16% of 18-29 year olds! Do you think Iowa matches these figures? That would represent app. 300,000 Iowans!
