On April 22, a coalition of Minnesotans from all professions and all walks of life, various non-profits, labor unions, and religious groups are marching on the state capitol to show support of higher education and the discovery, access, and understanding of scientific information. We are working to protect and defend science funding, regulatory agencies, and evidence based policy-making in recognition that science plays a vital role in the progress and sustainability of society. Join us!
Announcing the April Public Meeting of Minnesota Atheists:
Organizing the Minnesota Women’s March
On January 21st, 2017, we marched at capitols across the nation, in Washington, D.C., and in cities around the world in recognition that women’s rights are human rights. The mission was to send a strong message to our administration on their first official day in office. Around the world almost 5 million people marched to toward equality, justice, and human rights making the Women’s March the biggest protest in US History and with 100,000 participants here in Minnesota it was the biggest protest in Minnesota history.

The so-called “War on Christmas” began a few years ago when Bill O’Reilly of Fox News complained that some retail stores were instructing their employees to greet customers with “happy holidays” rather than “merry Christmas.” The perception of victimhood and persecution by Christians, some of whom insist that America should be declared a “Christian nation,” has been for atheists a topic of amusement ever since, even though a couple of years ago O’Reilly declared victory in the war.Rather than cultural insurrection, it seems to me that one’s choice of seasonal greeting is a simple question of courtesy.
