MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: A Step in the Right Direction

Posted February 16, 2011

We did it! Thanks to Representative Pete Stark and his team of staff members, the American Humanist Association is proud to have helped introduce the first resolution in Congress to designate February 12 as Darwin Day—a celebration of science and beloved by humanists and freethinkers around the world.
