If you don’t believe in god. You are not alone.
Many people throughout the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC) area live moral and meaningful lives grounded in reality rather than superstition. The Triangle Coaltion of Reason is an umbrella group of local organizations working together to bring about visibility and acceptance of secular humanists, atheists, and freethinkers–and to advocate on their behalf.
All of the consituent groups of the Triangle Coalition of Reason share a common vision to work towards a more secular world, but each group approaches this objective in a different way. Some groups are primarily social, some are educational, and some are focused on activism–but all of these approaches help to create a lively and involved community of like-minded people here in central North Carolina.
Mission Statement for the Triangle Coalition of Reason
- To bring together area group leaders in the community of reason to build consensus on objectives, strategies, and shared activities.
- To develop a Triangle CoR web site that will serve as a clearinghouse for information among and about local groups and their activities.
- To create a positive public image for secular, atheist, and freethought organizations by taking part in public relations and media training provided by United CoR and others.
- To pool ideas and resources for joint projects, such as United CoR ad campaigns and charitable events.
- To share technical knowledge and opportunities among local groups so that all can grow and fulfill their individual goals.
