Food for Freethought 2010

What is “Food for Freethought”?

Food for Freethought, inspired by the Center for Inquiry’s Campaign for Free Expression, is a food drive that also encourages freethought, freedom of expression, and free inquiry.  We plan to accomplish this by giving “Banned” and Freethought books away in exchange for non-perishable food donations that will be going to Food Bank of the Rockies, during “Banned Books Week”, September 27 – October 2 (specific dates below).  Our goal is to raise an enormous amount of food for those in need.  Most food drives are done during the holidays and tons of food is raised and distributed.  That is all well and good, but what about the majority of the time that it isn’t the holiday season?  The hungry don’t stop being hungry after the holidays, they are hungry now too!  Given the existing goals of Metro State Atheists, it is only natural that we would attempt to help the hungry by promoting freethought, freedom of expression, and free inquiry.  With the proper support,  we can  have an immeasurable positive community impact!

The event will be taking place at the Auraria Campus (1201 5th St, Denver, CO 80204).   September 28-30th, 9am-4pm (Times Subject to Change)

Metro State Atheists will have SIGNED COPIES available at Food For Freethought 2010 by the following authors:

Denver Atheists And Freethinkers Halloween Party

Denver Atheists And Freethinkers (DAFT) will be having a Halloween Party. There will be live music and loads of secular fun.

  • Location: Bushwacker’s
  • Address: 1967 S Broadway
    Denver, CO 8021o
  • Phone: 303-722-0280

When you get their, just tell them your with DAFT. Here is a description of the event from Jeanette, one of the primary organizers.

We finally found a venue for our party. I’ve moved up the start time to 8 o’clock, but it’s fine to come earlier or later than that. The live music starts at 9 p.m.

Greg R. and I will be there no later than 8 p.m., and will be wearing devil horns. To find us, refer to our photos. That’s probably the best way, because the staff might be busy, but if you look around and can’t find us, ask the staff for DAFT; we’ll let them know we’re there. It’s a small spot (capacity 100, plus extra patio space), so it shouldn’t be hard to find each other.

It’s a bar, so standard 21-and-up type of drinking establishment.

Cover charge: $5. (Cheap for a bunch of live bands.)

There will be four rock bands, ranging from New Wave-ish, through hard rock to punk. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but nothing I could schedule would be, and the variety increases the chance that people will enjoy something that’s offered.

Other pluses of picking a South Broadway venue: Fairly central Denver location, but cheaper cover charge than most places downtown, parking’s not quite as crazy as downtown (but the place is still very accessible by bus), you don’t have to be a 25-year-old supermodel, and you aren’t expected to wear lingerie (but of course you are all free to do so if you wish). SoBo isn’t as glitzy and fake as downtown.

These are the same folks that organized the Separation Of Church And State Rally a few weeks back. Anyway, Metro State Atheists will be there, and we hope you will be their too.
