Kevin Davis

SecularVoices — Rochester, NY

Kevin Davis is a secular activist focused mainly on fighting back against the harms that aggressive indoctrination can cause, especially in public school settings. He's the head writer and editor for SecularVoices, a Patheos blog, and is the co-founder and Executive Director of Young Skeptics, an elementary-level after school program for kids, focused on critical thinking and evidence based reasoning.

Young Skeptics was launched in January 2015 as a secular alternative to the controversial Good News Club, an organization operating in public schools that evangelizes children and spreads fundamentalist Christian doctrine focused on shaming children for their sins. Young Skeptics is currently undergoing national expansion, with plans to open clubs across the US in January 2017.

His first book, Understanding an Atheist: A Practical Guide to Relating to Nonbelievers, is aimed at improving relationships between the religious and their atheist loved ones.

Kevin has delivered presentations to local secular groups and at conferences, as well as at larger events such as the Reason Rally and the Ark Encounter Protest and Rally in 2016.
