Video of the 2002 Godless Americans March on Washington

The Reason Rally is next Saturday and it’ll feature rock stars in our movement as well as actual rock stars.

Nearly ten years ago, we tried to do something similar.

The Godless Americans March on Washington — yep, that was the actual name of it — took place on the National Mall on November 2nd, 2002.

There weren’t any “celebrities” but there were a lot of people who have poured their hearts into this type of activism. Many of them are still active now and I can’t even imagine how much pride they’ll feel at the sight of how large our movement has grown — in large part thanks to their efforts.

If you’re up for a bit of nostalgia, there’s video of the entire event available on C-SPAN. It’s not embeddable but check it out. You might hear some familiar voices.

    There were only a couple thousand, maybe, at GAMOW, but it was an awesome time.  Before atheism was really a movement.  Wish I could be at the Reason Rally too.   Damn, I need to dig up my GAMOW pictures now.

    I had planned to attend GAMOW. I lived in Virginia at the time, so it would have been a short trip. Unfortunately, my spouse got all paranoid because of the Beltway Sniper and really didn’t want me to go. So I stayed home to keep the peace. I wish I had gone.
