Our friends at Freedom from Religion Foundation have a long history of helping local secular groups counter Christian displays on government properties. Last year, a nativity banner was displayed on the AZ Capitol lawn. This year, FFRF’s local chapter wants to respond! Their plan is to display a banner like the one above for four days: December 21st-24th. Secular AZ is lending its support as a partner in the project.
We’re looking for volunteers to safeguard the banner. FFRF has put together a sign-up sheet here where people can sign up for either morning or afternoon shifts. The banner will be dropped off in the morning and picked up at 4:00 pm. (Please email us if you can help with that too.)
For safety, we’re looking for two people in each time slot. Volunteers would sit in their car(s) in the parking lot across the street from the Senate lawn and simply call the Phoenix police if there is a problem.
We hope you can join us for this action!
