Will Your Senators and Representative Stand Up for Reason?

Dear Friend,

The National Day of Reason, which will be held on May 1st 2014, is fast approaching! The National Day of Reason celebrates the application of reason and the positive impact it has had on humanity, whether in developing new technologies or guiding reason-based public policy.

The National Day of Reason is an opportunity to reaffirm the constitutional separation of religion and government, which is especially relevant considering that the National Day of Prayer, which is held on the same day, asks government officials to encourage their constituents to join them in prayer.

Every year we call upon members of Congress to show their commitment to reason and the separation of church and state by entering a statement into the congressional record honoring the National Day of Reason. We need your help to make sure that as many members of Congress as possible make statements recognizing this year’s National Day of Reason and opposing the National Day of Prayer.

Stand up for reason and the separation of church and state by contacting your Representative and Senators and urging them to make a statement honoring the National Day of Reason.

This is an important opportunity to fight back against the religious right and their massive influence on Congress. While several members of Congress have honored the National Day of Reason in the past, we need even more government officials to recognize this day if we truly want to have a nationwide impact.

Take a second right now to contact your Representative and Senators and demand that they enter a statement into the congressional record honoring the National Day of Reason.

Thank you for taking action in support of reason.

Sincerely,

Roy Speckhardt, Executive Director
