FFRF - Valley of the Sun Monthly Meeting
Special Guest at a Special Place, Date & Time:
From our president, Anne Mardick:
We are changing the date/time of our monthly meeting in order to take advantage of a unique opportunity to hear from a wonderful speaker from Washington, D.C., Jason Torpy, President - Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers and Freethinkers (MAAF), a national non-profit organization which is building a community for atheists and humanists in the military. He is also on the national board of the American Humanist Association and the Secular Coalition for America. And as I’m sure you’ll recall, the Secular Coalition for America is the parent organization of our very own Secular Coalition for Arizona of which FFRF – Valley of the Sun is a proud member!
Bio for Jason Torpy, President: After joining the military in 1994, Jason has been active with the nontheist community. He has addressed issues of separation of church and state and equal opportunity for nontheistic service members in Army basic training, Army parachutist training, military academy programs, and while deployed to Iraq with the Army's 1st Armored Division. His education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Management from West Point and a Masters Degree in Business Administration from The Ohio State University. Jason also serves on the boards of the Secular Coalition for America and American Humanist Association.
The FFRF Valley of the Sun Chapter Meetings are free and open to the public.
