In light of the rise of religious unaffiliated university-age students, Melissa’s topic “Teaching Reason–Building Tolerance” is a call for Millennials to be proud of the descriptions as “atheist,” “secular,” and “no religious preference.” The mission and work of the Atheist Alliance of America serves to ensure the development and provision of educational, advocacy, and community-building programs for the atheist community.
