Have we found the new atheist capital for the U.S.? It seems like it - and the places there might not be what you were expecting!

This week we'll bring you a series of bold new developments in the secular community around the world. First off, we're sending out an all-call to secular parents around the nation, ensuring that our schools provide the best possible access to students of all non-religious backgrounds. It is all a part of our new work with PTCAN,  the Parent Teacher Community Action Network, and its goal to begin a series of new secular-based community support networks in public schools around the nation. 

Plus, we will share news about the advocate who's bringing the hard secular questions to this year's top presidential candidates - and the interesting results he's receiving back.

Find out more below, and learn how you can be a part of major policy change in an unexpected part of the world. Moving forward in this new week!

Can Christianity Inspire Atheism?
We believe that America's schools should be inclusive and inviting to individuals and families of all faiths, and lack thereof. We are looking for a few good parents to lead the charge in our schools for just that  - and our trained staff will provide all the resources, training, and support you need to make it happen.
