Dear Friend,

If there is one thing Richard Dawkins knows, it’s science. Throughout this tumultuous year, Richard and the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science have been standing up for science while the very idea of evidence-based thinking has been under constant attack.

As we close in on the end of 2020, I wanted to explain why your commitment to science as one of 100 monthly donors to the Richard Dawkins Foundation is one of the most important things you can do for science and reason right now.

Thanks to your support, we are taking action, not wringing our hands:

On vaccinations:

We are countering the scourge of misinformation on COVID-19 vaccinations in webinars and through our online Coronavirus Resource Center. And in state after state, we are working to protect strong mandatory vaccinations requirements and to eliminate religious exemptions.

On challenging quack cures:

We are protecting everyone’s health by calling out the vast cesspool of fake COVID cures. We are taking Walmart and CVS to court for how they market fake medicine called homeopathy alongside science-based medicine.

We are one of only a few organizations taking on this important fight, which is why I hope you will join us by making a monthly donation. We need 100 monthly sustainers by October 31 to hit our important fall fundraising goal.

Additionally, we continue to lead the way in:

Teaching evolution:

During this unprecedented time of virtual learning, we are providing evolution lessons so middle and high school teachers have everything they need. The lessons have been downloaded thousands of times by teachers around the world, helping to keep the creationists at bay.

Making scientific knowledge freely available to people in Muslim-dominated countries:

Our Translations Project brings Richard Dawkins’s books on evolutionary biology to populations that don’t have access to science books, giving every native speaker of Arabic, Urdu, Farsi, and Indonesian access to learning how the diversity of life—including human life—came to be, as only Richard can tell it. Richard’s best-selling book on atheism, The God Delusion, is also among the free offerings, because challenges to entrenched religious beliefs open minds to science.

Who could have foreseen how desperately scientific truth and expertise would need a champion like they do now? But we are here to stand with Richard and stand for science.

Please stand with us by joining us as one of our 100 new monthly supporters today.

Thank you for your support.

Robyn Blumner

Executive Director, Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science

 

P.S. Your support is critical to the advancement of reason and science. Please give monthly today.
