Fred Edwords is National Director of the United Coalition of Reason, an organization that promotes cooperation among local groups in the community of reason and helps raise their public profiles. A former Executive Director of the American Humanist Association (AHA), former editor of The Humanist magazine, and past president of Camp Quest, his experience in the humanist movement is diverse. Fred was named Rationalist of the Year by the American Rationalist Federation in 1984 and received the Humanist Pioneer Award from the AHA in 1986, primarily for his effective countering of creationism through publishing, speaking, and organizing. He has written extensively on a variety of subjects that move and shake the secular community and remains an occasional contributor to the The Humanist as well as other movement publications and blogs. Fred is also on the faculty of the Humanist Institute, is National Director of the International Darwin Day Foundation, and serves on the Broader Social Impacts Committee of the Human Origins Initiative at the Smithsonian Institution.
