secular underground network

Atheism is on the rise and that is a good thing.  But as more people become atheists, many risk their lives because their governments and communities condemn it.   In fact there are 13 countries where being an atheist is punishable by death.  Non-believers in many other countries face discrimination and harassment from both their families and the authorities. 

The number of Atheists in trouble is growing and they need our help.

IAA is ready to help


Providing assistance is challenging and complex. Requests range from those feeling lonely and isolated in religious communities to those on the run because they have been identified as atheists. There are also many non-believers who left their home countries only to be stuck living in poverty and under restrictions for years in another country while they waited for UNHCR status. As borders close and asylum seekers face fewer options, helping atheists in trouble requires even more hard work and creative solutions.
