We are…
Atheists plus we care about social justice,

Atheists plus we protest racism,
Atheists plus we fight homophobia and transphobia,
Atheists plus we use critical thinking and skepticism.

History

Atheism Plus was started with posts by Blag Hag, Jen McCreight, in August of 2012. [1] [1]

Atheism Plus initially received a mixed reception in the atheist community and continues to be a controversial topic. Activists in the movement are commonly accused of trying to hijack atheism to promote other agendas.

Projects

A+ Scribe

"The mission of A+Scribe is to bring access to media in the Atheism Plus movement (and eventually beyond) to Deaf and Hard of Hearing readers.

We will strive to honestly, accurately, and completely transcribe as many media resources as we are able."[2]

A+ Scribe was announced on August 30, 2012 with Greta Christina's blog post, "Atheism+’s First Project: A+ Scribe!"[2]

Atheism+ Emergency Support Project

On October 20, 2012, After a vote in the Atheism Plus forum for a big project, members decided to start the Atheism+ Emergency Support Project: "A freecycle-esque project to give support to those who need it. We would do things like give information to people who are in emergency situations- for example, connecting someone in an abusive situation with information on a local shelter- or connecting people in need of goods with others who have things to spare."[3]
