The digital billboard will be up from 12/20-12/26 on the northeast corner of First Street and Ouray Ave., across the street from Bicycle Outfitters and Thai No. 9. There is plenty of free parking on the street so people can stop, get out of their cars and admire the billboard, and plenty of sidewalk space to stand on to take pictures of it.
WCAF was established in 2007 to provide community and a voice for atheists on the western slope
Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers was established in 2007 to give a voice to atheists and other nonreligious western slope residents. WCAF also serves as a watchdog for separation of church and state locally. The group has a page on their website where people can report violations of separation of church and state.
WCAF successfully fought mandatory student participation in religious high school baccalaureates, awarded a $4,325 scholarship to a Delta High School student who exposed the Christian proselytizing in Delta County public schools, prevailed in a fight over on-campus Bible giveaways at Colorado Mesa University, successfully stopped CMU from forcing nursing students to accept Bibles at their pinning ceremonies, pushed the City of Grand Junction to allow anyone, not just religious people, to offer invocations at City Council meetings, donated money to the Food Bank of the Rockies, held road cleanups, exposed the anti-atheist bias of long-time former Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce President Diane Schwenke, and much more.
The group holds meetings monthly, usually at a local coffee bar. You can also connect with WCAF and follow the group on their Facebook page.
