You are invited to the January Public Meeting of Minnesota Atheists.
We will start at 1:15 PM with our Business Meeting and our annual Board Nominations. At 2:00 PM we welcome our featured speaker LGBT rights activist Marissa McCool.
Marissa is an atheist, LGBT rights activist and speaker, multiple podcast host, author, columnist, and stage performer whose goal is to speak out, speak loudly, and bring visibility to LGBT issues.
Marissa came out as a trans woman in the midst of the 2016 election and kicked down the closet door by screaming in a hate pastor’s face and publishing a visceral reaction to the circumstances. In the last year, she has published five books, started a nonprofit for trans content creators, hosted podcasts, and has traveled all over the country.
Marissa has authored a total of nine books, including The PC Lie: How American Lives Decided I Don’t Matter, False Start: A Novel, Silent Dreams, and her newest novel Voice in the Dark. As host of the Inciting Incident podcast, she begins conversations on difficult topics in current events. In addition to many different interviews, such as with Noah Lugeons, Karen Garst, Dan Arel, and Chris Kluwe, to name a few, she hosts individual topics and conversations about LGBT rights, transgender visibility, suicide and mental health awareness, and the myths of PC Culture.
At the January Public Meeting, we will hear more about her story and her insights. An important takeaway will be that, as atheists, we are not immune to toxic cultural influences in regard to how marginalized communities are treated. As freethinkers and critical thinkers, we must always challenge our preconceptions. We hope you will join us for this insightful presentation by Marissa Alexa McCool.

Announcing the November Public Meeting of Minnesota Atheists:
Finding a job as an atheist, a panel discussion & networking
The November Public Meeting will be a discussion about finding a job as an atheist. This is a topic that everyone should have their own philosophy on, because even if you are employed, you cannot depend on being at the job you are at indefinitely. If you are retired, please come as well to share your knowledge.

The Halloween decorations are already out of stores and the Xmas ones are up! To celebrate the War on Christmas, some of us atheists will be joining up for some fun, secular, holiday cheer at the Green Mill Restaurant in St. Paul just like we have for several years. We will be meeting in the banquet room.
The Green Mill Restaurant is near Ayd Mill and Grand Ave. in St. Paul (57 South Hamline). Please bring a NEW gift(s) from the list below and join your family of heathens in organizing gift bags for families spending time at Children's Hospital of Minnesota. It would be helpful to let the rest of us know what your gift donation is when you RSVP or in the Comments section so we don't offer too much of one thing and we get a good variety of gifts.
