35% of adult Millennial Americans are religiously unaffiliated. Far more Millennials say they have no religious affiliation compared with those who identify as evangelical Protestants (21%), Catholics (16%) or mainline Protestants (11%). (Pew Research Center).
Atheist Membership for Equitable Nominations (AMEN) is a brand new political activist group who will work toward the acceptance of atheists and nonreligious persons into society and government, holding our representatives accountable to our growing demographic. AMEN holds that:
1. Atheists and religious nones should be accepted into every social and political arena without having their morals or humanity called into question. 2. Every local or federal electoral candidate should take the freedoms, requirements, and worldviews of atheist Americans into account. 3. Atheists should be able to run openly for government without it affecting their chances of winning.
We welcome all political leanings, genders, orientations, races, and worldviews. If you are an atheist committed to bringing about nonreligious equity to American politics, you are part of the family!
AMEN is a member of the Columbus Coalition of Reason.
