WASHINGTON, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Coalition of Reason (UnitedCoR)—headquartered in Washington, DC—is pleased to announce the launch of the first, completely free mobile app designed to link individual non-believers (atheists, agnostics, skeptics, humanists, freethinkers) and non-religious people with other individuals of similar interests and sincerely-held beliefs to activities in their local communities.
The mobile app, for Android and iOS phones, automatically draws updates from thousands of secular-friendly calendar web pages without the burden of data entry. Users can email calendar updates to themselves or to friends, receive and spread information about groups hosting events, and add dates to their smart phone calendars. In time, additional functions along with updates will be added, free-of-charge.
This outreach effort is the latest in a campaign that began in 2009 for the purpose of bringing together previously unconnected non-religious individuals and groups. Previous UnitedCoR promotions have included highway and bus billboards in over 40 states and Canada.
As United Coalition's National Coordinator, Susan Heap, stated: "We created the UnitedCoR app to provide a centralized, social network for our current and prospective members, along with the national organizations that want to work together to advance the interests of worldwide non-believers and secular-friendly groups."
A partial list of the affiliates and groups that UnitedCoR supports are:
Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association
The Stiefel Freethought Foundation
Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers
Secular Policy Institute
Secular Student Alliance
The Oasis Network
Atheist Alliance International
Society for Humanistic Judaism
