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.”
