Finally, An Organized Atheist Group in Washington DC...
A community of Atheists, Freethinkers, Humanists, Rationalists, and Secularists deeply concerned with the preservation of our First Amendment protections against religious tyranny. The VA-MD-DC area is home to one of the largest populations of Atheists in the U.S. Unfortunately, we are scattered among over 20 diverse organizations with little interaction or coordination. Many individual Atheists are unaffiliated with any group and feel isolated. Given the current political climate and the rising tide of rabid christianism, there is a strong need for the non-religious to stand together as a visible community, with a combined voice and a common focus.
We will serve as a home for everyone who has risen above religion. We will be a social framework for those who wish to be part of a larger community, providing social events, a support network, reinforcement, and friends.
We will also provide opportunities for engagement for those who desire activism. We will originate and participate in public events to raise visibility and awareness of our presence and our Constitutional position.
We've been active for about a year now, and are becoming better organized. We do tabling, happy hours, brunches, counter protests, and have a forum.
