We Spoke Up for Reason!
If you know that you can be a good person without believing in a god …
If you think public policy should be based on scientific evidence, not religious beliefs …
If you support the separation of church and state …
… then join us on June 4, 2016, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, for the biggest gathering of nonreligious people in history! Fantastic speakers, comedians, musicians, and tens of thousands of supporters will rejoice together in the growing power of nonreligious voters.
NOFS participated in Cleveland's Homeless Stand Down event on Saturday, January 14, 2017. It was our largest volunteer group yet! We partnered with HandsOn NEO and QWG and everyone had a great time!
Homeless Stand Down: Personal Shopper
Volunteers will be paired one-on-one with a guest or a guest with a child to help them shop for items in the distribution area for clothing and hygiene items. Volunteers should be able to stand for long periods of time and be comfortable interacting with a variety of individuals.
We had an excellent tabling at Cleveland's Ingenuity fest in September 2016, tons of people stopped by to find out what we are doing to keep the State/Church wall of separation strong. We received very positive feedback and lots of interaction!
Thanks to the visitors who stopped by to say "hello" at our table, see you next year!

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which debuted its TV ad featuring Ron ("not afraid of burning in hell") Reagan last year on "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report," is running the commercial again this week as a farewell to departing "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart and his irreverent wit.
The ad will play on Stewart's next to last show Wednesday. "Honestly, we couldn't afford the rate being asked for ads running on the last show," admitted FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor, "but we're pleased to run the ad live one more time nationally before Jon retires."
In the 30-second ad, Ron Reagan identifies himself as "an unabashed atheist" who is "alarmed by the intrusion of religion into our secular government. That's why I'm asking you to support the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation's largest and most effective association of atheists and agnostics, working to keep state and church separate, just like our Founding Fathers intended. Please support the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Ron Reagan, lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in hell."
Comedy Central has promised to pull out the stops on all its shows this week. The ad will run during the Aug. 5 show, which starts at 11 p.m. Eastern.
FFRF's TV spot has been refused by national CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX.
