Celebrity Atheists

We're in talks with several different people who happen to be celebrities and freethinkers.  While there has been no formal agreement and it would be premature to mention names, we can tell you that the conversations are going well and we are hopeful that schedules and desire will permit and we'll have several celebrities at the Reason Rally.

Hollywood has a large number of atheists and freethinkers in it's ranks but many times A-list celebs keep that part of their world to themselves.  However, we feel that it would help shed some light on atheism to "come out" of the religious closet and show that atheist celebrities can appeal to all audiences who can accept them in move/TV parts and as an atheists at the same time.

Stay tuned as we continue talking with celebrities and please take our new poll that asks which celeb you would most want to see and the Reason Rally.

Speakers [Updated]

We continue to make the Reason Rally the best possible event and would like to update our speakers list. As you may know we started with eight speakers and have added two more this week.  Jamila Bey and Hemant Mehta have been added to the list of fantastic speakers and we are thrilled to add their perspective of atheists and freethinkers to this diverse selection.

Stay tuned for our blog next week which should include some information about the festival itself.

Thank You

What a response we've had in the last 24-hours.  Hundreds of people have posted comments on Facebook and Twitter, Subscribed to our YouTube channel or sent emails to volunteering to participate in this exciting event.  It's been a fantastic day to say the least.

The biggest question so far has been "when exactly is the rally." and I wish I could tell you.  Unfortunately our first date was turned down for the permit so with the help of the board we have been discussing the next best possible time.  In fact, take the poll next to this post and help by giving your suggestion.  It will only be up for a week, so please hurry and tell all you friends to cast their vote so we can apply for the date as soon as possible.

Thanks again and we'll see you there,
Reason Rally
