Update 6/4/2016 – Thanks to everyone who is at Reason Rally today representing all secular Americans!
Reason Rally is only three weeks away!
Those who support reason should plan to attend the 2016 Reason Rally in Washington D.C. on June 4. Speakers, including leading scientists and well-known entertainers, will host the largest gathering of secular individuals in the nation to demonstrate the lobbying strength of those who support the separation of church and state, eradication of legislated faith-based discrimination against women and LGBTQ+ individuals, evidence-based educational curricula, and respect for the diversity of our American culture to include those of non-faith.
Want to go with a group? Members of our local Central Florida Freethought Community (CFFC) are attending together – join them!
What is it like? This video from inspirational secular icon Seth Andrews of The Thinking Atheist is a must-see:
This initiative is a collaborative effort of major national secular organizations. The Reason Rally gathering & celebration is on Saturday only, but there are activities over a four-day span to include door-to-door lobbying and a mini-conference if more involvement interests you. Visit ReasonRally.org for more information.
Don’t wait for the 2020 Reason Rally – attend this one!
