The Center for Atheism (CFA) was established by the New York City
Atheists as a separate and independent national organization to propose,
develop, and be a catalyst for new national activities supporting the
objectives of atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, skeptics,
secularists and separation-of-church-and-state advocates.
CFA will accept and review suggestions from individuals and other
secular organizations that will foster our goals.
