WASHINGTON — Atheists and other nonbelievers are gathering on the National Mall for what organizers say may be the largest secular gathering in Washington’s history.
Thousands of atheists, humanists and others are expected to gather Saturday for the “Reason Rally,” featuring speakers, music and comedy. Organizers say they also expect to be greeted by protesters from religious organizations.
The National Park Service says a permit calls for an estimated crowd of 15,000.
The American Humanist Society is one of the primary sponsors. Roy Speckhardt, the group’s executive director, says the rally will be a “coming out party” for humanists and atheists and a rally for political change.
