Friday Night Freethought:

  • February 22, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is our open drinks and discussion night, it is intended to be adult-centric but children are welcome - see more on this below.

The 'agenda': We will have a member highlight and a discussion topic to open the evening, after that it's about just hanging out with like-minded friends!

Member highlight: TBA

Discussion topic:

Guest Speaker - Northern Arizona Institutions for Community Leadership is a group that we have been working with lately. They are working on addressing some of the important issues in our area (immigration advocacy, education, etc.) but they are about a lot more than that.

Jason Lowry is a trainer and strategist for them as well as a teacher at Killiup Elementary. He will be giving us an introduction to NAICL, The Industrial Areas Foundation and giving us an idea of ways that we can best organize and effectively exert power, as an organization, towards those causes we care most about.

Having worked with Jason and attended one of his trainings I am really excited to get him in front of the group. I think he is a great resource in our community.


Hopefully we can get a great turnout for Jason - I think it will be an interesting presentation and Q&A.


-------

This is an adult-centric event but children are welcome and childcare can be arranged. Besides the likelihood that the conversation we boring for most of a younger audience, this also means that the discussion will be unrestrained. We try very hard to create an atmosphere that feels very safe for authenticity. We don’t censor topics or language at most of our events. Some of us choose to shield our children from these kinds of discussions while other of us prefer to have our children participate. Either way your kids are welcome. A separate space for the kids to play can be created, away from “grownups” and their blah, blah, blah but if you want your kids to participate or you see other kids there, don’t let that restrain your authentic exploration of whatever comes up.

    My coworker and friend (v)JJ has promised to get me to the event ASAP. I expect to be there well before 9pm for the secret board meeting. Did I just mention the board meeting? I mean I expect to be there and intoxicated before 9pm with absolutely no second agenda. For sure.

      If all goes as planned, the bus will get me there around 8:30. With luck maybe an hour earlier. I could use a pickup from the stop. Is the board meeting this week or next?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
