Karen Frantz, the Communications and Policy Director for the American Humanist Association, wrote a blog post for her graduate school online magazine about all the atheist advertisements in America that popped up in 2010.
Atheist advertising isn’t new — many organizations have been advertising on billboards and buses and in newspapers and magazines for the last few years. However, efforts have picked up in 2010, especially with the formation of the United Coalition of Reason, a national organization that helps local groups with funding for atheist ad campaigns in their areas.
The piece included a really interesting map, marking the locations of all the ads (and which of them were vandalized).
Looks like we’re covering a broad area of the country, but there are many big cities left to go! (I’m looking at you, atheists in Wyoming. Get to it!)
Do you think there will be more of these atheist ads in 2011 or fewer? Are they losing their effectiveness or have we only seen the tip of the iceberg?
