Freethought Toastmasters club has a loose, informal relationship with MN Atheists.  Many of our members are members of both, but that’s not required.  Some meetings have several speeches or comments about atheism or its relation to religions, while other meetings have no mention of atheism whatsoever.

Topics of speeches and conversations and the manner in which they are presented are limited only by the applicable Toastmaster Promises:

  • Help the club maintain the positive, friendly environment necessary for all members to learn and grow
  • Treat fellow club members and guests with respect and courtesy
