Thank you for supporting the National Day of Reason! The first NDR has come and gone, and it can fairly be characterized as one of the most successful such efforts ever.
As of today the NDR web site has received endorsements from more than 800 individuals and nearly 50 organizations representing almost every state in the union - and endorsements continue to roll in on a daily basis. We are especially grateful to those organizations who helped to publicize the NDR - in their newsletters, on their web sites, and by word of mouth. Their support was invaluable in this fledgling effort to promote a thoughtful alternative to government-sanctioned prayer, and to bring to light the continued assault on church-state separation.
We offer our congratulations to the members of the Secular Humanists of the Low Country and the South Carolina Progressive Network for their success in having May 1st proclaimed a Day of Reason by the Mayor of Charleston, SC, and to all of the other groups who conducted successful NDR events and demonstrations (see our web site for a list of all the events held in conjunction with this year's NDR). If you were involved in organizing an NDR event this year, we're anxious to hear how it went (pictures would be wonderful!).
Thus far, 13 items mentioning the NDR have appeared in newspapers around the country, and can be read on the NDR web site (link from the home page - "media coverage"), with additional stories anticipated in the next few days. We have posted the texts of these stories on-line, and invite you to read them. If we have overlooked coverage in your area, please let us know.
All in all, this was a great start. We will begin work on next year's NDR very soon, and will keep you posted on our progress.
Again, thank you for your support of the National Day of Reason!
