Hilary McLemore

Hilary McLemore

Vice President

December 2013 – Present

“I was raised as a Christian in the south. I always had my doubts about the existence of a divine creator, but I didn’t admit that I was an atheist until I was in my early twenties. I just ‘came out’ to my immediate family in 2012. Now I work as a personal trainer in New York City, and I’m surrounded by practitioners that promote pseudoscience and quackery in the health and wellness field. I want to do my best to promote science, reason, and critical thinking. I am so pleased to help promote a positive worldview with atheists and skeptics through Secular Action!” – Hilary McLemore


Michael Trollan

Michael Trollan

Founder

December 2013 – Present

I joined the active atheist community in December 2012, and the first thing I noticed was that it is difficult to get involved!

I had to do a bunch of research to find events to attend, causes to support, projects to volunteer on. So I decided that the best way to help was to create a website doing just that: connecting activists to actions. The site launched on January 7th, 2013 at www.SecularAction.org.

Bio: Michael Trollan is a technology consultant. He has built many name-brand websites, including Verizon.com, MarthaStewart.com, Coach.com, and many more.

The mission: make it as easy as possible to get involved in the secular cause.
