This month we feature: Sarah Austin is a transgender woman, atheist and LGBTQ Rights activist, community organizer, and podcaster. About the talk: A deep dive into the playbook of the Christian Dominionism movement that is seeking to dismantle the Wall of Separation between religion and government through legislation. How is this affecting Florida? How is the atheist community addressing this challenge? What can we as individuals do to effect positive change? A former AM Talk Radio Producer, she now hosts a weekly live podcast called SarahTalk, with her wife Becca and is the volunteer Audio Engineer for the Recovering From Religion podcast. Sarah and Becca recently founded the Atheist Community of Polk County to foster community and provide educational and volunteer opportunities in a very religious county. Together they are raising their two children with an emphasis on critical thinking and skepticism. --------------- Central Florida Freethought Community educational meetings are free and open to the public. Enjoy thought-provoking speakers, local freethought news, state/church activism, volunteer opportunities, and socializing. Come out to meet old friends and make new ones. Coffee and water will be available with snacks served during the social hour after the meeting so plan to stay a while. Read more about CFFC here. (https://www.meetup.com/cflfreethought/)
