The Latest Separationist: Download the May 2014 issue of the newsletter of the SHL. Our newsletter is produced each month from September until May and is always available here in PDF format.
Donate to the Charity of the Quarter: We pool the donations from our members and give the total to a local charitable organization. For Summer 2014, the SHL is collecting donations for Angie's Legacy Fund. Please help us make a generous donation to this deserving charity.
Silent Heroes: Herb Silverman: A Dutch film crew made a wonderful documentary about atheism in Charleston. Herb Silverman is the star and protagonist, but many other SHL members appear in it as well. Venues include the College of Charleston, our own Reason Fest at Gage Hall, and Charleston's Prayer Rally. Watch it online to see what people and places you recognize!
Please help the children of an atheist who was killed: Sadly, the situation is as Greta Christina has stated in her blog: "a member of our community has been murdered. She was a victim of domestic violence. And we have a lousy safety net in this country, which is going to make things even harder on her kids in this already terrible situation." You can help by making a donation to the college fund for her children. Donations collected by SHL will be pooled and given to Angie's Legacy Fund.
