Founded in 2009, the United Coalition of Reason is one of the largest nontheist groups in North America, a coordinating place for hundreds of independently run local groups, each a little different.
Each group in our “community of r]]><![CDATA[eason” rejects the supernatural and loves rational thought and science. We call ourselves atheist, agnostic, bright, Ethical Culture, freethought, humanist, Pastafarian, rationalist, realist, skeptic, secular, and other terms.
We are happy, positive people who would prefer to engage with religious people and find common ground, while being politely critical on a few important issues such as religious privileges in the law, and faith-based reasoning in political decision-making.
We respect your privacy! Each of our groups is a safe zone if you have not told your friends and family how you feel about religion.
Through our mobile app, you can find skeptic, humanist, and nontheist events in more than 50 metro areas around the world.

For Immediate Release Free, Global-Reaching Secular Community Mobile App Launched
(Washington, DC, USA; Tuesday, March 21, 2017)
The United Coalition of Reason (UnitedCoR)—headquartered in Washington, DC—is excited to announce that it has successfully launched the first completely free mobile app that is designed to help individual non-believers (atheist, agnostic, skeptic, Humanist, freethinker), non-religious and secular-friendly people find others of similar interest and sincerely-held beliefs. The app is designed to help people worldwide connect with others of similar interests, and find local organizations that support their point of view.
—————————- The first function of the mobile app, for Android and iOS phones, automatically draws updates from thousands of secular calendar web pages, without the burden of data entry. Users can swiftly email calendar events to themselves or to a friend, get more information about groups hosting events, and add an event to their smart phone calendar. Links to download the secular app for both Google Play and Apples iTunes can be found on the UnitedCoR website: http://unitedcor.org/app/.
This outreach is the latest effort in a campaign that began in 2009 for the purpose of bringing together the many non-religious individuals and groups that have heretofore been unconnected. Some of UnitedCoR’s prior campaigns have included highway and bus billboards in over 40 states and Canada.
United Coalition of Reason’s Communications Director, Susann Heap, stated: “We created the UnitedCoR app to provide a centralized location for our current and prospective new members, along with the national organizations that want to work together to advance the interests of non-believers worldwide. As the app grows and evolves, we will develop new applications that will be to the benefit of non-religious communities, as well as secular-friendly organizations.”
