What is Atheists for Liberty?
Atheists for Liberty is an educational, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending the fundamental freedoms that support the human quest for knowledge and the separation of religion & government.
What are our values?
Normalize Atheism – With atheism being one of the fastest growing demographics in the country, we provide educational resources, advocate on behalf of atheists, and offer communities for liberty-minded people.
Preserve Free Thinking – In order to build a civilized society, free speech and free thought are fundamental building blocks derived from the Enlightenment values that form the foundation of modern nations. It is essential to defend and preserve the right to exchange and critique ideas without retribution or unreasonable social consequences.
Safeguard Secularism – Historically, the separation of church and state has been a pillar of our Constitution. In a secular nation, religious freedom forbids the government from endorsing, promoting, or advancing religion.
Advance Individual Liberty – A citizen's freedom and way of life should not be oppressed by oppressive restrictions. It is imperative that we uphold the values instilled by our Founding Fathers that enable us to question the legitimacy of theocracy and dominant culture when tyranny is advanced in the name of divinity or social justice.
