Secular Student Alliance giving the atheist movement momentum--says the New York Times
"Part of what is giving the movement momentum is the proliferation of groups on college campuses. The Secular Student Alliance now has 146 chapters, up from 42 in 2003" wrote Laurie Goodstein in the New York Times on April 26th, 2009.
We're actually growing so fast that we're up to 150 affiliate groups now (they interviewed us last week).
The SSA does not charge any of our campus affiliates for the services we offer. So more groups doesn't mean we have more resources to support those groups. Individuals like you support the Secular Student Alliance and make it possible for us to help mobilize these campus leaders (of course, they do a lot of mobilizing on their own, too). We cannot do this without the help of our donors. Become one today! We are a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit and your contributions are fully tax deductible. You say you don't want to join? Well, you could also just ChipIn! Thanks!
Bravo to the Pastafarians of the U of South Carolina and Andrew Cederdahl for their shout out in the story as well!
Want to get involved? Check to see if there is an SSA Affiliate Group near you. You can look to see if someone on your campus is working to start a group. You can also request a Group Starting Packet if there isn't a group in your area and you'd like to get one going.
