Leslie Zukor’s acceptance speech
Congratulations to Reed Secular Alliance founder and former President, Leslie Zukor. Zukor won the 2010 American Atheists Founders’ scholarship. The award, which was founded in 2002, is a $2,000 prize, based primarily on activism.
Zukor’s devotion to freethought activism is far reaching. In addition to founding the RSA, Zukor has been instrumental in bringing speakers such as Daniel Dennett, Lori Lipman Brown, Chris Mooney, and Greg Epstein to Reed College.
Furthermore, she is the founder of the Freethought Books Project, which gives atheist, humanist, and freethinking literature to prisoners across the country. As a photographer, Zukor’s work has been on the cover of The Humanist magazine.
Congrats to Leslie.
