Statement by the Freedom From Religion Foundation Re: Lawrence Krauss

In light of well-documented allegations of sexual misconduct against Lawrence Krauss, and in keeping with FFRF's commitment to feminist values, the Freedom From Religion Foundation's Board of Directors voted on Feb. 22 to remove Professor Krauss from the organization's honorary board

Krauss had joined that board, which is purely an honorific, about two years ago. The board vote was taken promptly after the first BuzzFeed article was published online.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wis., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational charity, is the nation's largest association of freethinkers (atheists, agnostics), and has been working since 1978 to keep religion and government separate.
