Review for Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers, Washington, DC, USA
Was president of the first MAAF?MASH group at Fort Bragg in 2011/12. MAAF president deliberately presents false information to the public through the media and other non-profit organizations in order to justify organizations agenda. Does not work with satellite groups at actual military facilities but attempts to align him-self with work being done at a grass roots level and take credit for it. Very unprofessional and unorganized group.
We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. MAAF would like to take a moment to comment on the items you have posted. 1. MAAF, MAAF President Jason Torpy, and the Executive Board fact check before presenting any information to the media and general public to ensure that the best and correct information is distributed. This is done to ensure that all our servicemembers are receiving equal rights and the same opportunities. 2. MAAF works closely with local Affiliate groups at varying levels. The organization hired an Outreach Coordinator in 2014 to ensure that each local group has the support and resources they need to achieve their goals and support nontheist servicemembers locally. MAAF promotes each group and the successes they have, not to take credit, but to encourage others to get involved locally, to be supported, and help develop the local communities in and around military installations. 3. MAAF employees and the Executive Board do their best to promote the nontheist community, ensure the rights of all servicemembers, and exhibit the very best qualities expected of military service. Each day that the organization is in operation is a day of improvement over the ones that came before. MAAF is in a period of growth, and we are developing even better practices and outreach activities. We hope you will continue to observe MAAF activities and perhaps participate again. The group at Fort Bragg is very active in their community, and organize monthly gatherings for themselves to come together as a community in order to meet their own needs, and those of their community. Warm Regards, Rosalind Eaton Outreach & Operations Coordinator
