Light the Night Fundraising
Has your group created a Light the Night team yet? It's easy and a great charity effort-- not to mention, all the money your team raises will be matched by the Stiefel Family. The Light the Night effort is year long, so it isn't too late to sign up and create your own team or join an existing team. If you create a team, don't forget to incorporate FBB and SSA in your team name. And let us know, too! We are proud of our 25 Light the Night teams representing secular students across the US-- can we make it 50 teams?

Alexander Aan Petition
Alexander Aan is an Indonesian national who posted on his Facebook page that he doubted the existence of god. He was mobbed and put into jail for doing so. A WhiteHouse.gov Petition has been started, calling on the President to make a statement denouncing the actions of the Indonesian government in regards to jailing Aan. You can sign the petition here. Share it with your group members and hopefully we can reach the goal of 25,000 signatures.
