Day of Reason 2009

Minnesota Atheists strongly value the separation of church and state. To remind our government of who they represent, we make our collective voices heard in the State Capitol while our fellow citizens observe the National Day of Prayer. Every voice counts. If you can take a long lunch break, or have the free time, we would appreciate making your presence known with us. You'll be hearing from the leadership of Minnesota Atheists, as well as from our members. Prepare to be moved by famous speeches you may have heard before, and listen for original orations on separation and the rights of atheists.

This year, we will be featuring speakers from other organizations which support the separation of church and state in an effort to show why that concept is so important for everyone, atheists and the religious alike.

Come be a part of history and make your voice heard.

For information about the event, you can contact info@mnatheists.org or call 612-284-4495.
