Solstice Party

It’s going to be a great time to come together as friends and community to celebrate the season! More details to come!

It’s going to be a great time to come together as friends and community to celebrate the season in the secular way!

We have lots of fun planned for this cold winter’s night: kids crafts, trivia games a gift exchange and more!!

This will be a potluck event so feel free to bring your favorite holiday dish to share! Alcoholic beverage are also welcome! (Please avoid glass containers.)

In keeping with one of the best (or worst) seasonal party traditions, we are inviting everyone to wear there worst, most festively awful holiday sweaters! We will have name tags and a ballot box with winners announced at 8pm!

The “White Rabbit” Gift Exchange

Very similar to the well known White Elephant gift exchange the idea here… The idea is to bring a gift small enough to be pulled from a magician’s hat. If you wish to participate, simply bring a small, well wrapped gift and be ready to have fun!

**We would also like to ask for $5 donations to recoup the cost of our venue.

Stay tuned for more details to come!

Volunteers! We need supplies, decorations and all around awesome people to help make this event a hit. Please contact me (Jenni Lucki) if you want to help out!!!

Helping troubled LGBTQ youth

Test

IAF wants to assist at-risk teens in the LGBTQ community and elsewhere with information about how, when, and why to Come Out. The book “Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other and Why”, by Greta Christina, provides guidelines and advice applicable to secular people or those in the LGBTQ at-risk group – especially pre-adults. This book is a wonderful tool written by an author that is intimately familiar with both of these topics. Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers would like to provide this book for free to anyone that would like access to additional resources or assistance in Coming Out.Recently a young transgendered woman in Ohio, Leelah Alcorn, took her own life. In her final notes Leelah cited her parents’ refusal to accept her for who she was, the isolation that they had made her feel, and her parents continued pressure through religious means to change her identity. This is an absolute tragedy, and a tragedy that can be avoided by providing outreach and community for those that feel isolated and alone. Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers is dedicated to providing a safe and open community for those that feel unwelcome or isolated from their family and friends because of their (lack of) religious beliefs or LGBTQ status.
By contributing to the link below, your donation will allow IAF to purchase a case or more of this book along with other IAF resources. This book will be available on hand for free for at-risk individuals.

IAF appreciates your contribution and support in ending the kinds of isolation and alienation where Leelah Alcorn or anyone like her feels the need to take their own life.
