The Reason Rally

On March 24, 2012, tens of thousands of atheists, humanists, and freethinkers descended on the National Mall in Washington DC for the largest gather of atheists ever. Featuring speeches from Richard Dawkins, Adam Savage, American Atheists President David Silverman, and Eddie Izzard and musical performances by Tim Minchin and Shelley Segal, the Reason Rally was the result of the combined efforts of a broad coalition of national atheist, secular, and freethought organizations including American Atheists, the American Humanist Association, the Secular Coalition for America, the Secular Student Alliance, and many more.

American Atheists National Convention

Following the Reason Rally, American Atheists kicked off our 38th Annual National Convention at the Bethesda North Marriott and Convention Center. Featured speakers included Richard Dawkins.
