I became involved in secular activism over a decade ago when I started a Secular Student Alliance chapter at my college. I later ran for and got elected to their Board of Directors and ended up chairing that board for several years. If I hadn’t gotten involved with them, I don’t think I would ever have started this website (or written any books).
The year I got involved with the SSA, we had under 50 college affiliates across the country. As I write this, there are around 400 chapters, including nearly 70 at the high school level. A number of campuses even run their own free conferences.
It’s just a staggering amount of growth in such a short time and we have to keep it going while the momentum is on our side.
Today marks the beginning of SSA Week 2013:
And to top it off, any donations you make this week (including today) will be doubled thanks to a matching offer from Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss.
This is a no-brainer. Of all the groups I donate to, this is the one I prioritize. Helping students now means helping the entire movement in the future.
Please consider giving something to the Secular Student Alliance. You’ll be happy you did it.
