IAF Sunday Meetup & Guest Speaker

This is our regular weekly Meetup. Please come and join us for an interesting discussion on a variety of topics! For our June 23rd Meetup we will have guest speaker Mark Stringer, Executive Director of ACLU-Iowa provide a presentation!

“The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), like IAF, is a non-profit organization. Dating to 1920, the ACLU’s stated mission is ‘to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the U.S.’ The ACLU point is, it is not up to the government to draw the line between what we can and cannot see, hear and read, but an individual right.” From free speech and abortion rights to LGBT issues; from representing alleged CIA torture victims to defining the Second Amendment as a collective, rather than an individual right, the ACLU has been lauded and vilified from the Right as well as the Left. But few have been able to criticize it’s objectivity: at one time, the ACLU defended, simultaneously, the rights of blacks on behalf of the NAACP, AND the rights of the Klu Klux Klan to hold rallies and give speeches calling for the abolition of those rights. Not only that, they defended the rights of IAF to hold it’s “Don’t believe in God?” bus ad campaign ten years ago.

Criticism notwithstanding, the two million-member ACLU is involved in more than 6,000 cases every year. Secular thinkers and writers are among it’s many clients. Please consider attending what should be an interesting and informative presentation.
