Yasmine Mohammed

Yasmine is an Arab-Canadian university educator, activist, and author. She has a website, Confessions of an Ex-Muslim, and she has recently written a memoir titled From Al Qaeda to Atheism. In her memoir, Yasmine describes how, even though she was born and raised in North America, she endured the same traumas that are familiar to Muslims across the planet. As a child, she was beaten for not memorizing the Quran. As a teenager, she was forced into a marriage to a member of Al Qaeda (after he was bailed out of prison by Osama bin Laden himself). And as an adult, she wore a niqab, and lived in a home/prison with paper covering all the windows. Today, Yasmine is an outspoken secular activist who, in addition to speaking out on her own, takes part in the Secular Jihadists podcast with fellow ex-Muslim freethinkers Armin Navabi, Faisal Al Mutar, and Ali A. Rizvi.

Aron Ra

Aron Ra (formerly L. Aron Nelson) is a renowned video blogger and atheist activist. Many of his videos focus on biology (with an emphasis on countering creationist claims) and advocating for rationalism in science education. He also posts written material on his website, LocoLobo. Aron has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences, both in the U.S. and abroad.

Aron currently serves as the Texas State Director of American Atheists. He was previously a co-host on the podcast Dogma Debate with David Smalley. He is also affiliated with the Fellowship of Freethought in Dallas, TX. In a most recent development, Aron is running for a spot in the Texas Senate!

MISSION STATEMENT
We are dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of separation of church and state and educating the public on matters relating to nontheism.





"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated."  

-Madalyn Murray O'Hair



If you're not currently a member of NOFS, we invite you to attend one of our meetings or meetup events, and you can register HERE. And of course, feel free to reach out and call or email one of our voluntary board members. We'd love to welcome you to our fun, engaging chapter!
