Posted on October 31, 2019 by PJ SlingerFFRF on the road (Nov. 2019) On Sept. 24, FFRF Legal Director Rebecca Markert spoke to the atheist/agnostic/humanist group at Taycheedah Correctional Institution (a women’s prison) in Fond du Lac, Wis. Markert said that she was not allowed to bring in anything from the outside, including a camera or phone, so was unable to get a photo of her visit with prisoners, however she did snap this photo of the sign outside. This is the (edited) invitation Markert received from Chaplain Zachary McKenzie at the prison: “Greetings, I am the chaplain at Taycheedah Correctional Institution. We are a female prison that currently houses 927 inmates. I am wondering if anyone from FFRF would be willing to come lead/speak at our humanist/atheist/agnostic service. We have 19 women who identify as humanist/atheist/agnostic at TCI, and we are currently the only prison in Wisconsin that hold services for the humanist/atheist/agnostic umbrella religious groups. We once received some donated issues of Freethought Today from you and several of the women would like to hear more about FFRF.” Carter Warden (“Adam Mann”) invited Dan Barker to speak on Sept. 26 at East Tennessee State University, where he is now assistant director of student activities and organizations, his new job after leaving the ministry. Before the meeting, Carter took Dan by the church where he used to minister, and they grabbed this “I am free!” photo.
