Organizer/AuthorDave Kong
The meeting is sponsored by the San Francisco Atheists and is free and open to the public. Johnson will speak on "MADALYN O'HAIR: What She Stood For and Why Her Ideas Matter Today." Johnson discusses O'Hair's legacy, and why her ideas are especially relevant today in the midst of the "American Religious Civil War" and issues like the faith-based initiative, "prayer bullying" in schools and the workplace, and the effort to legislate "special rights" for organized religion.

Johnson is also Executive Director of the Godless Americans Political Action Committee (GAMPAC), a nationwide initiative to elect Atheists to public office. Contact Dave Kong, Ca. State Director for American Atheists by email dksf@atheists.org or 415-771-9872.

American Atheists is a nationwide movement which defends the civil rights of nonbelievers, works for the separation of church and state, and addresses issues of First Amendment public policy.
