Wave 3 of the Chicago FFRF “Out-of-the-Closet” Billboard Campaign Is Now Appearing in Chicago!

The final seven of 21 total billboards created by the FFRFMCC featuring area freethinkers encouraging other non-theists to more open about their non-belief were erected for another 4-week flight beginning March 4th, 2015 in locations around the north side of Chicago.

The campaign began on December 15th, 2014 with eleven individual billboards scheduled for a 4-week cycle (although some are still up!), and  continued the week of January 19th with three new designs featuring groups, including the Chicago Black Skeptics, five “senior” atheists, and five FFRFMCC Board members.

This newest campaign includes three couples, two physicians, a former minister, and a Secular Student Alliance president.

Since debuting the “Out-of-the-Closet” campaign in Madison in 2010, FFRF has taken the personalized campaign to Columbus, Tulsa, Raleigh, Phoenix, Nashville, Portland, Spokane, Sacramento, Cleveland and Akron.
The new Chicago billboards and their locations are below.
