Recently a friend of one of our members became the first to pull out his spot light and turn on the Atheist Signal. Much like Batman, we can be called to defend science and sanity anywhere in the Phoenix area, and perhaps beyond. We have yet to see the limits of the Signal tested.
Anyway, our new friend runs an art gallery in downtown Phoenix, and he has a problem that is right up our alley. On the first Friday of every month, during the First Friday art walk events (which are important not only to visitors but to the businesses involved), he has a regular crew of unwanted guests in the form of loud preachers yelling into his gallery from the street.
Even worse there are reportedly other groups of preachers in the area for these events as well, so we may be forced to split up our time or people to cover them all, but if we seem to be making a positive impact then we will continue to attend First Friday events indefinitely.
If you haven’t come out to Mill Avenue with us, maybe because it’s too far away from you, please consider this as an alternative place to make a difference. We would love to see some new faces out there to support us and the truth!
If you plan to come out you can just look for a group of unhappy preachers with an extra speaker near them, or you can use the forum or contact form to get in touch with us ahead of time and we’ll make more solid plans.
