Announcement of NAP partnership with Black Nonbelievers, Inc. made today
January 31, 2013 (Newswire.com) - The National Atheist Party and Black Nonbelievers have partnered together to advance their parallel goals of advocating on the behalf of atheists and nonbelievers nationwide. This showing of mutual support was met with great excitement from the members of both parties.
"The National Atheist Party is proud to announce our partnership with Black Nonbelievers. We are very excited and pleased to expand our outreach into diverse communities, and this partnership is a welcome step in that direction," said Troy Boyle, President of the National Atheist Party.
Black Nonbelievers is an Atlanta-based non-profit dedicated to living free of religion and irrational beliefs, and acts as a social network for atheist African Americans. The organization, originally called Black Nonbelievers of Atlanta, was founded by Mandisa Lateefah Thomas and Felicia Smith, in the hopes of creating a caring and meaningful environment for their fellow atheists in the Atlanta area. Ms. Thomas announced that "Black Nonbelievers, Inc. is proud to be affiliated with the National Atheist Party. We are confident that our collaborative efforts will result in long term progress in bringing out more openly outspoken atheists/nonbelievers - especially in the black community. Our voices need to be heard so that our rights will not be denied."
Both The National Atheist Party and Black Nonbelievers are open to anyone who shares their concern for the rights of atheist citizens in this country, regardless of gender, gender identity, race, or national origin. Both organizations value a discourse of reason and rationality when discussing the issues that affect us all, both local and national, and feel that this pairing does them a great service in this respect.
