For anyone who may not be familiar, Freethought Festival is our student-run freethinking convention held annually here in Madison, Wisconsin. It is completely free and organized by all the fine officers here at AHA. Authors, bloggers, activists, and scientists from around the country give talks relating to atheism, freethinking, skepticism, science, and secularism. The event is funded by AHA through an annual operations budget received from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Freethought Festival 5 will take place on April 8th and 9th, featuring James Randi, Eugenie Scott, Indre Viskontas, and many others. For more information, please check out the Festival website:

All are welcome at FTF5!

These advertisements will reach thousands of students and community members in Madison-area buses over the next four weeks, many of whom we hope will consider attending. The messages are the second part of AHA’s spring bus ad campaign and will run from March 12th through April 9th.

For information about these bus campaigns, please contact: Nicole Niebler,

These bus advertisements are funded by AHA’s 2015-2016 General Student Services Fund (GSSF) grant. AHA’s $64,000 budget, the largest ever received by an atheist student organization, is paid for by student segregated fees. For more information about AHA’s budget, please visit:
