Hello Friends and Family!
It’s been a few months since The Houston Free Thinkers activist community has been active on the streets of Houston and we are itching to get back to action! First, as noted in the previous blog, we took a few months off for Summer vacation and to reevaluate what our community means and how we can best use our energy and network. As we near the end of September 2016 we are seeing an increase in interest in the HFT and Houston activism in general. We have had several people reach out and ask when HFT is going to be around or what we are doing next! What’s next you ask???
Well, on Wednesday September 28 HFT will host a meeting at the Midtown Bar and Grill (419 West Gray) at 7 pm! Come out to make your voice heard and help us decide what direction to take this community! We want to thank Midtown Bar and Grill for being gracious hosts to us, especially because this will be our last meeting at the restaurant. That’s because on October 1st we will have a new Free Thinker House in Houston’s East End!
If you didn’t know, from Spring 2012 to Spring 2014, members of HFT lived together in a house that also functioned as a venue for meetings, screenings, skillshares, sign making parties, house shows, a community library and much more! After taking a couple years off from the community living situation a couple HFT’ers are preparing to live together once again and provide Houston with a space for community events! We are even planning a monthly Open Mic event! Stay tuned to this website for more details in the month of October!
Despite our absence in the streets, HFT has still been active helping other activist groups. In early September, several HFT members helped launch a new community focused on fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline. If you want to get involved check out Houston Stands with Standing Rock and check out our coverage below!
Finally, even when HFT is not on the streets or hosting events we are on the airwaves every Monday from 3-5 pm Central for Free Thinker Radio on 90.1 KPFT on the HD3 dial. Micah Jackson and Derrick Broze of The Houston Free Thinkers will be bringing you the news you won’t hear in the mainstream plus interviews with important guests!
Thanks for your continued support! Once we move in to the Free Thinker House we will be celebrating 6 years of Free Thinking with a community potluck/gathering! Stay tuned for details!
Live Free. Think Free.
