First Freedom First at DC Drinking Liberally


We hope you can join us on Thursday September 20, 6:30-9, as we host Eric Shutt, director of First Freedom First, in the back room of Timberlake’s (1726 Connecticut Ave NW, Dupont Circle Metro).

First Freedom First is a partnership of two organizations — The Interfaith Alliance Foundation and Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Their mission is to protect our religious liberty and separation of church and state.

Phil Donahue had this to say about First Freedom First: “The Founders were right. Never let the pompously pious politicians pretend they have God (and you don’t). First Freedom volunteers are today’s patriots, the ground troops in the fight against those who would make America a theocratic nation of one religion: Theirs.”

The evening will start off with happy hour from 6:30-7:30 followed by Eric’s talk and Q&A, 7:30-8:15. We’ll be hanging until 9 or so.

More about Eric Shutt:

Mr. Shutt began managing First Freedom First after graduating from the University of Maryland, June 2006. He received a dual degree in Government & Politics, and Psychology. Prior to joining the staff, Eric served for two years interning at The Interfaith Alliance in both field and public policy departments. He is a member of Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honor Society, and comes to TIA with experience in political organizing, policy analysis and research, and organizational management.


  1. I’m going to be in DC in November for the Americans United training sessions; if anyone is interested in getting together Saturday night November 10 I’d be happy to.
