Mike Smith is promoting a really positive idea that I hope others will help promote: a Global Atheist Solidarity Day.
It’s a day to stand up together as one and provide support for those who struggle to be non-religious in their communities. There are many around the world who have to hid their beliefs because of social pressures, taboos, threat of violence, and even death. Everywhere there are people who have to hide out of necessity. This day will be a day where atheists around the world wear something that identifies themselves as an atheist.
It’s months away and it will need help to get off the ground, but it’s a simple thing to do. Like all grassroots campaigns, if enough people do it, it could really have an impact.
All you have to do for now is sign up for the Facebook group.
