mission & vision

El Paso Atheists fights to protect the absolute seperation of religion from government and raise the profile of atheism in the public discourse.

our leadership team

Our name uses the word Atheists.  It is prominently displayed and legible.  It makes no apologies and does not attempt to hide behind common ground and dismiss who we are.  We are also humanists and we are secular, but you are going to have to accept that we are atheists.  We stand up for the rights of atheists and fight for the seperation of church and state.  El Paso Atheists are part of America and we are an equals.  Simple, proud and to the point.  Our logo uses the Richard Dawkins A and spans it into the word El Paso.
