The National Atheist Party differs from other political organizations in that our individual membership, general and registered, possess the opportunity to shape the direction of the organization as well as the platform, policies and values that form the foundation of the National Atheist Party. The primary mechanism, which serves these ends, is the National Atheist Party’s system for policy proposals. This process offers the opportunity for Registered Members to influence policy and debate directly three times a year.
Thank you for your participation.
