The National Atheist Party seeks to politically represent U.S. atheists and all who share the goal of a secular government by gathering the political strength of secularists nationwide while being guided by the values of secular humanism and evidenced-based reasoning.
The National Atheist Party is a Constitutional movement dedicated to the preservation of the Founding Fathers’ vision of a secular nation. We are a progressive secular political organization whose current incarnation is as a non-profit 527 political organization. As we grow and evolve, we intend and expect to develop into a full-fledged political party. We are assembled for two important reasons: to give a political voice to U.S. atheists, who have never enjoyed political representation before; and to stand athwart those elements and groups that would seek to undermine the secular foundations of this great country.
The National Atheist Party is open to people of all races, sexes and sexual orientations, and cultures. We are committed to a government free of superstition and bias and are guided by principles of equal opportunity, recognition of merit, and economic responsibility. The National Atheist Party does not seek to inhibit the religious practices or beliefs of any group, but is committed to the idea that religious preference is a private matter and has no place in the government or workplace. We support the separation of church and state and seek to ensure its strictest interpretation.
The National Atheist Party is a non-profit, 527 political organization devoted to issue advocacy. As a 527, we are able to attempt to influence the selection, nomination, election or appointment of individuals to a federal, state, or local public office or office in a political organization. The election of the Presidential or Vice Presidential electors is also part of the exempt function of a 527 political organization.
If you would like to assist us in this process or perhaps are interested in running for political office yourself, please make us aware of your aspirations and we will determine how to assist you in reaching that personal goal. We are looking for volunteers for leadership positions in your state’s chapter as well as other key positions within the NAP nationally.
