In 2017, the Arkansas legislature passed Act 911, a law requiring all classrooms and libraries in the state to display the national motto, “In God We Trust,” along with the flags of Arkansas and the United States.
The law’s sponsor, Rep. Jim Dotson (R-Bentonville), said that the intention was to display our nation’s “history and heritage” in classrooms. However, in an interview on HLN, he admitted that the purpose of the displays is an “acknowledgement of God in public life.”
American Atheists is committed to acknowledging our nation’s true “history and heritage” rather than just the religiously-motivated “In God We Trust” motto. We rely on the generosity of our members and supporters to allow us to provide accurate posters to all Arkansas schools!
