Inmates Can Reform Without Religion

Activist: Inmates Can Recover Without Religion

Freethought Books Project Challenges Faith-Based Dominance in Prisons

Portland, OR - Prisoners can reform without God, atheist activist says.

The Freethought Books Project, founded by activist Leslie A. Zukor of the Reed Secular Alliance, has been promoting secular reform among prisoners since the fall of 2005. The group has collected over 2,000 books free of religious content and distributed them to prison libraries, individual inmates, and prison-donating organizations.

A Harvard Student's Experience at the Secular Student Alliance Conference


Andrew MaherAs an officer for the Harvard Secular Society, I had the opportunity in June to attend a major humanist conference in Washington, DC, thanks to some generous funding from the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard and the Secular Student Alliance (SSA).

This conference was held jointly by the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), the American Humanist Association (AHA), and the SSA. The IHEU is an organization that includes Humanist, rationalist, secular, atheist, and other non-theist groups from all over the world. The AHA is a domestic organization that aims to promote the ideals of humanism, and the SSA seeks to mobilize young people to become activists for secular causes. The other Harvard attendees were Kelly Bodwin, an undergraduate; Jon Figdor and Sebastian Velez, graduate students; and Greg Epstein, the Humanist chaplain.
