This year will be my first time attending an American Atheists national convention. Since I’ve never been before, you may not believe me when I say: You really need to make your way to Philadelphia this March 28-31! But you don’t have to take my word for it. I asked three of our special guests…

It’s hard to believe our 2024 National Convention is only two weeks away! There’s still plenty of time to register and join hundreds of atheists at the best atheist event of the year. However, TOMORROW (March 14) is the last day to take advantage of our group’s special hotel rate of just $159 per night….

I’m excited to announce that a dedicated group of supporters has created a matching fund for our 2024 Service Project in Philadelphia! Together, they are going to match your donation toward that project dollar-for-dollar, up to $3,028. Why have they done this, you wonder? It’s simple: they know that Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s famous statement is…

Earlier this week, we celebrated news that the Biden Administration has finalized rules prohibiting religion-based discrimination by taxpayer-funded social service providers – something we’ve been demanding for more than five years. These new regulations will ensure that government-funded social service providers inform people seeking services of their legal right to be free from discrimination and…

As Public Schools Week comes to a close, it seems a good time to reflect on the tremendous value and vulnerability of our secular public education system. Their immense social and economic benefits aside, public schools are vital in creating informed citizens capable of thinking critically. That, of course, is crucial because a pluralistic democracy…

How are you doing? I ask because it’s been a rough week for those of us who’d rather not live under a theocracy. If you’ve been managing to avoid the news… First, how? Second, I apologize in advance for bursting your bubble, but we really need you – and all of our atheists and other…

The atheist event of the year will be here before we know it, and I wanted you to be among the first to know what to expect at our national convention March 28-31. We are proud to present one of our most diverse and compelling line-ups of speakers yet. Register today because you are not…

Some good news this week: 19 states are either considering or have already passed legislation that would allow terminally ill Americans to receive compassionate medical aid-in-dying (sometimes referred to as MAID). American Atheists advocates in support of medical aid-in-dying bills because we believe this practice creates a person-directed system that honors the values, beliefs, and…

On Thursday morning, our nation’s top political leaders gathered in the U.S. Capitol for the 72nd annual National Prayer Breakfast. News coverage of the event emphasized that it was the first time President Joe Biden and House Speaker Mike Johnson appeared together. The two were seated next to each other, shook hands, and shed a…

It’s a wild time to be the State Policy Manager at American Atheists. State legislatures have only been back in session for a few weeks, and I’m already tracking hundreds of bills — some good, most bad for those of us concerned about keeping religion out of government. One of the most alarming trends I’ve…
