You're invited to the second meeting of the Freethought Books Project Correspondence Club. This is a service project, where freethinkers in the Buffalo area will be paired with secular inmates to develop a pen pal relationship. Letter-writing supplies will be provided -- all you need to bring is yourself.
We request that volunteers be freethinkers and identify as agnostic, secular, humanist, atheist, or the like. We are not trying to spread non-belief in prisons—prisoners often write to us saying they don't have any connections to non-religious people, however, so the pen pal program is fulfilling a need for that connection.
The Freethought Books Project is CFI's response to the abundant religious material and proselytizing found in our prison system. We send freethought books—secular, scientific, non-religious literature—to prisoners who request it, and we are also offering a pen pal program. Over 30 prisoners have requested pen pals so far!
