June 1 -- Madison, Wisconsin

 Benson 350px

Don't miss a night with Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson at Freethought Hall, Friday, June 1 at 7 p.m.

A graduate of Brigham Young University, Steve Benson's brilliant career spans nearly four decades and he has consistently found himself embroiled in controversy with his fearless editorial cartoons in the Arizona Republic. Benson publicly broke with the Mormon church following his revelation that his 94-year-old grandfather, Ezra Taft Benson, the putative president of the LDS Church, was, in fact, completely incapacitated while still in an unquestionable position of power in the church. Benson then turned his sharp wit and pen to the work of exposing hypocrisy and fighting religion "as an impediment to civilized advancement." 

Steve will speak in the Charlie Brooks Auditorium on the 4th floor of Freethought Hall conveniently located in downtown Madison. Many of Steve's irreverent cartoons will be shown. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and light refreshments will be provided. This event is open to FFRF members, their friends and family. Contact us at 608-256-8900 if you have any questions.

Not on my dime: how school vouchers fund religion and harm public education, by Patrick Elliott, Senior Counsel, Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc.

School voucher proponents have pushed legislation to fund private schools with public money in many states across the U.S., including in Minnesota. President Trump has proposed creating a $20 billion federal voucher program. What can you expect if school vouchers continue to expand?

Patrick Elliott will discuss the harmful impact of vouchers and what we can do to stop their rapid expansion. Voucher schemes harm public education and overwhelming fund religious schools, violating the separation between church and state.
