On Saturday, January 29, 2022, at 1:00 PM (PST)/4:00 PM (EST), several hundreds of people will gather on Zoom to celebrate the birthdate of an often- forgotten Founding Father, Thomas Paine. Hailed as a “Freethought Hero,” and great patriot, the January 29th event will be, as far as we know, the very first Zoom celebration of his birth.
Zoom connections will be made from all over the world and everyone will be invited to deliver a toast in celebration of the life and work of this amazing campion of reason, independent thought, and revolutionary ideas. The event is presented by the newly formed Thomas Paine Memorial Association (TPMA), a 501(c)3 organization, with the purpose of educating the public and installing a statue of Thomas Paine in Washington, DC, and other places of significance to the life of Thomas Paine. The American Humanist Association, Center for Inquiry, Freedom From Religion Foundation, Freethought Society, and the Thomas Paine National Historical Association are cosponsors.
