“Julia is a vibrant and energetic candidate who is already supporting the working class through her union affiliation and will continue to fight for every person in her district. She embraces the diversity of American society with her support for all people rich and poor, those of all faiths, races and gender identities. She has taken a very supportive stance for all veterans, and as one myself, she has my full confidence that she will battle for our rights going forward. I’m very excited she has chosen to run for Congress, and I intend to work tirelessly to see that she’s elected in 2018.” Dennis Wortham, Corona, CA
“The mission of the Freethought Equality Fund (FEF) is to change the face of American politics and to achieve equality by increasing the number of open humanists and atheists, and their allies, in public office at all levels of government. FEF supports progressive candidates who are strong advocates for the separation of religion and government and the protection of civil liberties. FEF is affiliated with the Center for Freethought Equality, which is the advocacy and political arm of the American Humanist Association.
The Freethought Equality Fund represents atheists, humanists, and other nonreligious Americans and seeks to increase our participation in the political arena. Today 24% of Americans do not identify with any religion. According to the Pew Research Center, the religiously unaffiliated is now the largest ‘religious group’ in America, surpassing Evangelical Protestants and Catholics. If you just consider Americans who identify as atheists and agnostics, this community is as large as the Jewish, Muslim, Mormon, Orthodox Christian, Buddhist, Jehovah’s Witness, and Hindu communities combined!
This endorsement is in recognition of your support for the issues that are important to the nontheist community – secular government, scientific integrity, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights, and civil rights for all Americans.” Freethought Equality Fund, Washington DC
