Calling All Nonbelievers . . . Come Out of the Closet!
Join FFRF's Out of the Closet
Virtual Billboard Campaign
Declare and share your nonbelief! Although the nonreligious — including one in six U.S. citizens — are a significant segment of the world population, many Americans have never knowingly met a nonbeliever. You can help dispel myths, educate and promote reason by adding your voice, face and message to FFRF's friendly neighborhood freethinker campaign. FFRF's "Out of the Closet" billboards and bus signs are going up around the country. Although we can't put everyone on a real billboard, every nonbeliever can participate in this unique "cyberboard" campaign. (Yours might even be chosen, with your permission, for an actual billboard.) This is your chance to proclaim you're a freethinker and why. It's working for the gay rights movement. Now it's time for atheists and agnostics to come out of our closet. Many faces make Enlightenment work.
To be most effective, keep statement succinct. Participants may wish to coin a quotable quote about religion that you'd like to see on a real bus sign or advertisement, or to make an affirmative statement about being a freethinker. We encourage you to really "come out of the closet" and use your full name, but you may prefer first name, nickname or to add a description, such as age, title ("Prof.," "M.D."), occupation, location or description ("college student," "grandfather," "gardener," etc) for a personal touch.
The "Out of the Closet" National Ad Campaign billboard image and design belongs to FFRF. Until your "cyberboard" is approved by FFRF, any use of these images or the design used for these billboards is prohibited. You will receive express permission if and when your submission is approved.
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.
