Thanks to your overwhelming support and generosity, we are thrilled to announce we have met our goal of raising $30,000 well ahead of our June 30th deadline, and we are now ready to launch the second phase of The Hotline Project: gathering and training volunteers.
If you want to help others along the journey of recovering from religion, and you understand the difference between compassion and conversion as well as empathy and evangelizing, you might be a good candidate to volunteer on the Hotline. We are NOT an “atheist deconversion hotline”, and we won’t be debating callers. Most people who contact us have already made up their minds to reject supernatural beliefs on some level, and the rest are strongly reconsidering the role of religion in their lives. If your goal is to debate, argue, “save”, or convert people to the “right” religion, this won’t be a good fit for you and you won’t make it through the required training. However, if you just want to help others find their way into the vast and wonderful secular community that exists across the USA, fill out an application to get the process started! You will receive an email letting you know what the next step will be. Every application will be verified, and all references checked, so we appreciate your patience as we go through everyone’s submissions. Thank you again for your interest in being a part of the RR support team, we look forward to working with you!
