Jan 9, 2017 Newsletter

It's been over a decade since Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris (and to a lesser extent, Dan Dennett) launched what's been nicknamed the New Atheism.

Their books repackaged a lot of old arguments against faith into a challenge against the unquestioned assumptions that blind faith is a virtue.

Since then, an atheist and humanist movement has grown in a number of directions both on and offline.

In his latest column for The Huffington Post
, American Humanist Association executive director Roy Speckhardt looks at this growing secular movement in the USA and asks the question of who will be part of the humanist movement going forward.

It's an interesting time to be involved in the effort to promote progressive and secular values and we're glad you're a part of our efforts.
