Reason Rally 2016: Speak Up for Reason
On June 4, 2016 thousands of secular Americans came together at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC to Speak Up for Reason and show the rising power of the secular American voting bloc.
Showing Our Presence
The goal of the Reason Rally was to showcase the presence and power of the nonreligious voting bloc, and to demand that reason be put at the forefront of our public and political discourse. We excited and empowered attendees about that message to take back home and apply at the local and state levels.
Not only do we celebrate our secular, atheist, agnostic, humanist, freethinking, and nonreligious identities, we are prepared to exercise our power at the voting box to bring good sense back to government. But the Reason Rally is first and foremost a celebration — with awesome speakers, bands, entertainment, and political leaders — all there to celebrate and support the secular community.
It’s important for us as a community to just come together, be among like-minded folks, and celebrate who we are and what we’ve accomplished. We call it a “voting bloc party” because we want to capture that feeling of community and celebration alongside the strong message of growing political influence.
