Homage to Daniel Dennett: Champion of Reason and Enlightenment

Daniel Dennett has dedicated his life to the pursuit of truth and understanding, inspiring generations to come to follow in his footsteps and continue the quest for knowledge and enlightenment. As we honor his memory, let us recommit ourselves to the principles he held dear, knowing that with courage and conviction, we can build a world guided by reason and compassion, where ignorance fades and enlightenment flourishes.

I really want to thank AAI for their continuous help after my husband’s (Mubarak Bala) disappearance since 28th April, 2020. AAI has been helping me both financially and emotionally because Mubarak was taken away when our son was 6 weeks old.

AAI came to my aid from the very moment I have contacted them, emotionally, financially, and finally to safety. They did help me survive and supported me emotionally when I had no one to lean on! I will forever be thankful for them and will never forget what they did for me.

Atheist Support Network

Do you have the freedom to believe or not believe in a religion? In many countries, nonbelievers do not have this freedom, and in thirteen countries, nonbelievers face arrest or a death sentence!
Atheist Alliance International has been working to help atheists and ex-Muslims for years but we significantly ramped up our efforts in 2019 by developing the Atheist Support Network (ASN).

"It is very important to me to make a clear distinction here: we are not acting against a religion," Faeser said, but just against a group accused of undermining the German state as well as women's rights.

Atheism is a Ground for Asylum

In a very important decision by a Greek Court, atheism has been recognized as a legitimate ground for claiming asylum!  This is the first time a Greek court has made this determination, and we believe, a first anywhere in the world. Atheism is now recognised as a ground for the vulnerability of a person in a fundamentalist religious state.
It can now be argued, in Europe at least, that atheists are at special risk in some Islamic countries and, consequently, need to be protected.
