AHA "Under God" Case goes to Mass. Supreme Court! Rally

On September 4, a groundbreaking case of great importance to atheists and humanists will be heard before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Doe vs. Acton-Boxborough Regional School District is brought through the AHA's Appignani Humanist Legal Center, and is the first in the nation to assert the rights of atheists-humanist solely via equal protection and nondiscrimination. The case challenges the state law that requires daily school-sponsored and teacher-led classroom recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, because the pledge's "under God" wording discriminates against atheists-humanists by instilling and defining patriotism according to God-belief.

AHA leaders and members will be meeting outside the courthouse between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Come join us and show your support for this important case!
