AOF Activities & Events
Atheist Day or Atheist Coming-Out Day is a relatively new global secular holiday declared in 2019 by the Freedom From Religon Foundation in partnership with the Atheist Republic. In the words of the declaration:
"We atheists and atheist allies hereby declare that from now on, March 23rd is Atheist Day. We recognize the struggle of atheists to live authentic lives in many parts of the world. The struggle to openly affirm one’s atheism. The fear of intolerant governments, mobs, and religious zealots.
"On March 23rd we shall take a stand for our right to be treated equal and for those of us in countries where atheists are persecuted and live under a threat of death. From every city in every country in the world we shall be one voice, a voice of reason."
