Hi <<First Name>>,
This week we celebrate Margaret Downey, who founded The Freethought Society, 25 years ago. And we update you on the good deeds and volunteers of East Iowa CoR and Connecticut CoR.
Our own writers speak out, with Melissa Pugh listing women's rights marches with local CoR participation, and James A. Haught highlighting blasphemy's risks.
And there's hope in La La Land for skeptics wanting to meet each other and praise reason and science.
Jase Heap, Executive Director
United Coalition of Reason

Today he turns the spotlight on the many other active leaders in Connecticut CoR.
