Guest Speakers & Events
True to our mission, we are committed to educating the Milwaukee freethought community about the parallels between religion and mythology by creating local events featuring notable speakers, hosting Meetup groups for intelligent discussion, screening films and more. We want develop a community of educated freethinkers who support and share the mythicist position. Since our beginning in 2013, the MM team has hosted relevant events, such as:
- "Gnosticism and early Christianity," a special presentation by Miguel Conner, author and religious studies scholars (November 2013), co-hosted with the Southeast Wisconsin Freethinkers (SWiFt)
- "Night Journey to Hamtramck" documentary screening at the Times Cinema in Wauwatosa, Wis. (April 2014)
- Freethought Alliance of Milwaukee (FAM) kickoff event, an event dedicated to bringing the freethought community of Milwaukee together to brainstorm ideas for collaboration and future events (June 2014), co-hosted with SWiFt, KRAFt, Secular Student Alliance, Sunday Assembly, Secular Coalition for Wisconsin and the American Humanist Association
- "Night Journey to Hamtramck" documentary screening at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater (November 2014)
