"Reclaim the Name: Atheist and Proud" is a new educational campaign to raise awareness on the strides atheist and other secular groups are taking to help others, and to educate people on the meaning of the word "atheist" in order to detach the stigma that has been attached to it and encourage a more accepting view of the atheist community as a whole.
It is not uncommon for atheists to be discriminated against and ostracized by believers of all faiths, due mostly to a misunderstanding of the word, and indoctrination which teaches that we are lacking morals, or even in extreme cases, that we are actively trying to destroy religious freedoms and religion itself. It is our goal to change this view through education and awareness.

We are currently in the process of researching the steps to gain legal status as a nonprofit educational organization.
