Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry Message Board › 3/24/2012 : Reason Rally in DC
|A former member||
Hi, I'm an atheist in Atlanta GA and just joined the group to spread the voice about the Reason Rally taking place in Washington DC on Sat 3/24 - just in case someone hasn't heard yet.
Here's the link to the website where one can find all the info about the rally: www.reasonrally.org
Here's an excerpt from their "About" page: "What is the Reason Rally? The Reason Rally is a movement-wide event sponsored by the country’s major secular organizations. The intent is to unify, energize, and embolden secular people nationwide, while dispelling the negative opinions held by so much of American society… and having a damn good time doing it!"
There are buses taking people to the rally and back, leaving from major cities in the US. Here's the link for the Charleston area bus, it leaves Fri 3/23 at 10.25pm and gets back Sun 3/25 at 4.34am: Charleston Bus
It's now 110 a person, but they're currently offering a 50 percent discount: Bus Discount
Hope you can all make it!
