    Dear Friend, I’m proud to announce that the American Humanist Association will be holding our first-ever congressional briefing on July 22nd at 12:30pm in Rayburn 2103 regarding the need for Humanist Chaplains in the U.S. military. We have some fantastic speakers lined up for the event, including: Jason Torpy, president of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers and endorsing agent for the AHA's Humanist Society Stephen Boyd, a retired colonel and military chaplain and endorsing agent for the United Church of Christ Major Ryan Jean, a member of the military and active humanist. Since the defeat of the Polis Amendment last year, which would have allowed the military to appoint Humanist Chaplains, humanist soldiers remain chronically underserved. Tell your Representative to attend the congressional briefing on Humanist Chaplains in the U.S. military and support a chaplaincy that represents soldiers of all faiths—or none at all. Our experts will provide crucial testimony to educate members of Congress about the importance of including Humanist Chaplains in the U.S. military. Nonbelievers outnumber all non-Christian faiths in the military, and nontheist military members can benefit from the confidential guidance and comfort provided by humanist chaplains as they endure the stresses of combat and separation from their families. But this important testimony won’t affect serious change unless members of Congress and their staffers attend the briefing. I need you to take a second right now to contact your Representative and ask that she or he attend this briefing on Humanist Chaplains in the military. This briefing has the potential to ensure that our military respects the beliefs and nonbeliefs of all of its members. Thank you for standing up for our nontheistic soldiers. Sincerely, Roy Speckhardt, AHA Executive Director Roy Speckhardt, Executive Director
