This is our regular, weekly, Meetup. Please come and join us for an interesting discussion on a variety of issues.
The Humanists of Linn County, a chapter of the American Humanist Association and member group of the Eastern Iowa Coalition of Reason, is hosting Reason On The Hill Day at the Iowa State Capitol Building on April 17, 2017, from 12:00 pm until 2:30 pm. Secular organizations and allies from across Iowa will gather in the Rotunda to speak with legislators about the importance of reason and critical thinking when serving the people of Iowa and the necessity of ensuring a wall separating church and state remains intact.
Roxanne Gissler, President of Humanists of Linn County will be giving the invocation in the House Chambers at approximately 1:00 pm. As far as we have been able to determine, this will be the first Humanist invocation given at the Iowa Capitol.
The United Coalition of Reason will be represented by Melissa Pugh, Grassroots and Outreach Coordinator as well as Coordinator of the Chicago CoR. The United CoR is the parent organization of the Central and Eastern Iowa Coalitions of Reason made up of one dozen non-theist groups throughout the state including the Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers.
