ACA to host National Day of Reason Event May 5th
April 18, 2011
ACA will be holding a demonstration at the Texas State Capitol on Thursday, May 5th from 11:30 am to 1pm as part of our National Day of Reason activities. We would like to get a big group out there with signs promoting reason and church-state separation. We'll wave at cars, show off our, and chat with people on the street.
This event is part of a National Day of Reason response to the National Day of Prayer event occurring at the same time at the Capitol. As far as we know, this particular NDoP event does not violate church-state separation boundaries, but the national movement is clearly over the line and being challenged by FFRF. (If you know of a way that the Austin NDoP event violates church-state separation, please let us know.) We will be exercising our free speech rights in response in the form of a demonstration. National Day of Reason activities are traditionally done across the country as part of a movement to promote reason and community service.
Please come down. Wear sunscreen and bring some water for yourself. The event is fun and a great way to show your support for reason and church-state separation. You can park at the City Parking lot near the Capitol. Joe Zamecki and Chuck Clark are organizing this event.
From the officers:
The ACA Lecture Series continues Sunday, March 8th at 12:15pm at the Austin History Center, 9th and Guadalupe. The building opens at noon. Ryan Bell will talk on "My Year Without God: Now a Permanent Condition."
