Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Atheist Alliance of America has been fighting indoctrination for more than 26 years. We are now helping the homeless, the LGBTQ community, and we help people who are leaving or are otherwise affected by religion, but our primary goal is to promoting atheism through various education programs online.

We support people and organizations who have passion and talent.

We mentor and support activists and other secular organizations.

We have developed various committees to meet these needs.
