American Atheists — Washington, DC
Amanda Knief is the Administrative Director of American Atheists. Amanda grew up in Iowa, a hotbed of atheism. She has a B.S. in journalism with minors in biology and geology and a law degree--none of which matters to tea party legislators. Amanda worked in the nonpartisan division of Iowa Legislature, the Legislative Services Agency, drafting legislation for Republicans and Democrats in the areas of education, labor, tax, and immigration. Amanda loves living in D.C., which is much, much warmer than Iowa.
Amanda's talk topics include:
- The Godless Lobbyist: The Triumphs and Travails of Working on Capitol Hill
- Atheism and the Workplace
- How to Be an Atheist Advocate Without Really Trying
