‘Secular safe zones’ offer campus shelter to atheist students

    Religion News Service: The Secular Safe Zone program kicked off this fall after two years of planning by the Secular Student Alliance, a national organization for nontheistic students. The program enlists “allies” like Schmidt among faculty, administrators, counselors and others on college and high school campuses who are trained in the needs of nonreligious — or “secular” — students. So far, there are Secular Safe Zone allies at 26 college and high school campuses in 14 states, including California, Nevada, Ohio, Utah, Illinois, Florida and New York.
