Freedom from Religion

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is one of the most active, prominent and large groups advocating and litigating for secular causes. Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaynor are the founders/directors. Barker is a former minister and spoke at the Jefferson Center several years ago.

FFRF publishes a great newsletter, Freethought Today with articles. information on lawsuits they are pursuing, and, my favorite, the blotter of all the crimes committed by ministers, priests, and other religious officials. Currently they are promoting their "Out of the Closet" campaign, based on the Gay Rights movement efforts, to encourage atheists to go public so that the public will begin to see that we are all just people--not scary or threatening.

They have an annual convention which is great fun---such as the non-prayer breakfast--- and full of information and inspiration.
