According to their website, American Atheists gives the requests of their members higher priority over those from non-members. If you are a member of American Atheists, please e-mail them with your version of the following:
American Atheists seems to be the only national freethought organization which has not joined the Secular Coalition for America. I am interested in helping to foster an atheist movement, and the Secular Coalition seems like a great way to increase our political power and make sure that our growing numbers are represented. Please help me understand your reasons for not becoming a Secular Coalition member.In fact, even if you are not a member, I think your e-mail would help. I realize that there is no guarantee that they will respond to any of us. However, they might be more likely to do so if they realized that this was important to current and potential members. Personally, a continued lack of response would tell me that this would be an organization to avoid.
