No matter where one lives, leaving Islam carries an onerous price. Religious authorities and their most fervent devotees respond too often with violence to criticism of any kind. Blasphemers, apostates, and freethinkers are socially exiled and hunted down by governments and vigilantes alike, all in service of an ideology that rejects science, relegates women to second-class status, and demands unquestioning submission.
For those of us who value freedom of conscience and expression, this is unacceptable. We at EXMNA strive for a world where all are free to speak freely, live freely, and pursue the truth irrespective of any authority or dogma.
EXMNA works to support the causes we believe in through advocacy, public events, and several awareness-raising projects. In addition to educational videos and mini-documentaries, we maintain WikiIslam and our Persecution Tracker while additionally petitioning public and private policymakers on behalf of ex-Muslims’ interests. These efforts and others add up to a monumental undertaking of activism for our small team.
