BRING YOUR CHILDREN. Age appropriate activities and presentations will be provided while you enjoy our speaker.
Our apologies for the last minute change, but we are able to catch Nick Little as he passes through Dallas on his way to speaking events in Austin and San Antonio. Rex and Randall agreed to move their talk so we could take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Nick Little is Vice President and General Counsel of the Center for Inquiry. Currently, he is involved in lawsuits in Michigan and Texas to permit secular celebrants to solemnize marriages, and also in the District of Columbia challenging CVS for its marketing of homeopathic products.
In his talk, "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Secular Litigation in the post-Kennedy World", Nick addresses the changing landscape facing secular organizations seeking to defend the rights of non-believers, promote science-based policy-making, and fight back against Christian Nationalism through the federal court system.
We are planning a Spring Egg Hunt for the kids at 1:00, so bring your baskets and we'll provide plenty of eggs and goodies to fill them with!
Fellowship of Freethought, as part of its mission to promote a family-friendly organization that emphasizes education, socialization, and charity, will be encouraging its members to gather together once a month to learn from each other, share in each others' lives, and coordinate outreach to the community. These "Gatherings" will combine music, short presentations, and special announcements all running alongside a fun yet educational youth program. Following presentations and youth activities is a potluck meal to encourage close fellowship among all members.
Just bring food (whatever dish you like to eat). FoF Dallas will supply the drinks, ice, napkins, plates, cups, and eating utensils.
Bring enough to feed yourself, your family, and your guests — as if that were all you had to eat.
Food should be "ready to serve". It should be cooked, cut, and ready for someone to quickly put it on their plate as they walk through the line.
Label your dish with the ingredients if it contains common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts (groundnuts), nuts from trees (including Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts), fish, shellfish (including mussels, crab and shrimps), soy products, and wheat.
Applications for Voting Membership will be collected at the Gatherings.
