Help make the lives of atheist teens easier

In my capacity as high school organizer with the Secular Student Alliance I have been working for the last several months on a project called Secular Safe Zone.  It’s a means by which teachers can make it apparent that their classroom is a place where equality for non-believers is expected.  It will also identify that teacher as somebody a non-believer can speak to safely if they’re being bullied, considering coming out of the closet, etc.

It is my hope and belief that this program will go a long way toward reducing the higher suicide rate of atheist teens and improving their quality of life.

Many of you have already helped by submitting logos for the program.  Last week we decided on one.

Now we need to build the web site.  We already have somebody signed on to do the artwork, but now we need help building the web site.  Admittedly, I know nothing about this, so I turn to you guys.  I wish I could pay you, but I can’t.  I could pay you in hugs and gratitude (and buy you a beer or three at Skepticon), but that’s it.

If you’re still moved to help, the site must be built in Drupal 7.  If you have that skill set, shoot me an email at wwjtd21 [at] gmail [dot] com.


Oh, and here’s one that didn’t make the cut, but will still make PZ very happy…

Thanks everybody.
