About United Coalition of Reason
The United Coalition of Reason works to raise the visibility of local nontheistic groups in North America. Nationally, this is done by means of advertising and media campaigns which highlight the fact that nontheists live in every community across the United States and Canada. Locally, this is done by promoting informal cooperation among local groups, hosting local coalition websites, training group leaders, and funding publicity outreach. ("Community of reason" is a generic term that includes all self-identified nontheistic organizations, whether they call themselves atheist, agnostic, bright, Ethical Culture, freethought, humanist, rationalist, realist, skeptic, secularist, or whatever else.) How is cooperation achieved? Group leaders in a given city or region are brought together for the purpose of establishing an informal coalition. This local coalition is then used to foster joint activities among the groups and raise the collective public profile of the local community of reason itself. Such coalitions across the country are then placed in communication with each other so they may share ideas and resources, and benefit from the collective experiences of local groups across the country. Services offered Most services are directed toward the formation, initial growth, and nurturing of local coalitions. UnitedCoR does this in four ways: 1. It lays the groundwork for the creation of a local CoR that can act as a forum for area group leaders and serve as a clearinghouse for public information on their groups. 2. It offers free Web hosting and a website template for the local CoR website. 3. It provides free public relations and media training of local group leaders so they may improve the public profile and outreach of their individual groups and the local CoR. 4. It assists with funding for a local ad campaign aimed at bringing traffic to the local CoR website. And UnitedCoR charges nothing for these services. All are free. The only thing the organization asks in return is to be prominently identified on the local CoR website. Other work of UnitedCoR In addition to CoR development, UnitedCoR offers a variety of continuing services to local CoRs in the form of program ideas, technical advice, and opportunities to interact with other CoR leaders around the country. UnitedCoR also assists to fund fairs and festival booths for local CoRs, and co-sponsors regional conferences that function to promote wider cooperation. Where it isn't possible to develop a CoR because perhaps only one nontheistic group exists in a given area, UnitedCoR is nonetheless able to provide valuable assistance and advice.
