Description: In the city sometimes known as “Hotlanta”, get ready for the weekend that is sure to live up to the description! Taking a different approach from the standard method of introductions, the official launch of the Atlanta Coalition of Reason (ATL CoR) will be a Summer Solstice celebration, complete with a launch party on June 21st, followed by a concert on June 22nd. Speakers and performers will include Greydon Square, Jeremiah Camara, Sam Singleton and Steve Hill.


ATL CoR coordinator Mandisa Thomas says, “This is an initiative that is well overdue. Atlanta has one of the largest populations of nonbelievers, and there are so many strides to be made by the area groups working together. I am proud to be part of facilitating this important and festive occasion, as well as all future projects.”


“There are a number of fine organizations in the Atlanta area to serve the diverse needs and styles we have and to further the cause of those of us without religion” says veteran activist and ATL CoR advisor Ed Buckner. “But we have very much long needed better ways of pulling together for the sake of the things we have in common. With Mandisa at the helm, the Atlanta Coalition of Reason is destined to serve our movement, our local groups, and our members extraordinarily well. This is great to see and I’m eager to be a part of it.”


Tickets are $25 for party and concert ($15 for party and $20 for concert separately). You can purchase tickets in advance via this link:
