License Plate Update

Since our last post announcing our intentions to apply for an official Kentucky license plate, we submitted our application and met with the Transportation Department. Due to what we found out, we have withdrawn our application. There are two main reasons for this: An organization applying for a plate may not be involved in the promotion of religion or non-religion. KySS proudly supports atheist groups and the normalization of atheism in society, and this counts as the promotion of non-religion.

License Plates for Secular Citizens of Kentucky

Join the KY Secular Society for 2016 and help us show our numbers for the opportunity to get a license plate like the one above in KY! (The image has been removed by request from the KY Transportation Cabinet since the design is not yet approved.) In order to apply for the plate we need an advance commitment for 900 plates. If you can commit to ordering one of these plates were they to become available let us know in the comments! (To be clear, this is an unofficial gauge of interest, not an official survey.) EDIT: Several people have asked how to commit to purchasing a plate. At this point we are starting the application process, and after our application is reviewed we will have 2 years to collect the 900 required commitments. When we reach that point in the application process, we will post instructions here and on Facebook. Thanks for your interest and enthusiasm!   Your membership helps to support The atheists booth at the state fair and the KY Freethought Convention, and other events. Local groups including Louisville Atheists and Freethinkers, Black Non-Believers of Louisville, Reasonable Living, Somethings Brewing, and other groups throughout KY.
