Freethought Equality Fund Endorsement


The Freethought Equality Fund represents atheist's, humanists, and other nonreligious Americans and seeks to increase our participation in the political arena.   Today 24% Americans do not identify with any religion. According to the Pew Research Center, the religiously unaffiliated is now the largest 'religious group' in America, surpassing Evangelical Protestants and Catholics. If you just consider Americans who identify as atheists and agnostics, this community is as large as the Jewish, Muslim, Mormon, Orthodox Christin, Buddhist, Jehovah's Witness, and Hindu communities combined!

This endorsement is in recognition of your support for the issues that are important to the nontheist community - secular government, scientific integrity, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights, and civil rights for all Americans.

Although Steve grew up in a Methodist faith, he recognizes the founding father's intention to separate church.  He understands the American right of religious freedom as well as freedom from religion as part of the American pursuit of happiness afforded by the Constitution of the United States of America.  

Erica Smith for US Senator 2020

Erica Smith NC Senate endorses Steve Woodsmall, PhD

I can't tell you how honored and proud I am to have the endorsement of US Air Force Major DrSteve Woodsmall (Ret).

Steve is taking on Mark Meadows in the 11th District of North Carolina. And just as he did for 20 years in the Air Force, he will attack this endeavor with the utmost competence and verve. Steve's service to the nation stands leagues apart from developer Meadows. He has established himself in the communities of Western North Carolina as a man of honor and integrity who is more than qualified to represent the 11th Congressional District.

I look forward to working with Steve to help bring the voice of North Carolina strongly back to Congress next November.

Gale Mull, Mayor Pro tem of Canton NC


As a retired member of U.S.W Local 507, I know Steve Woodsmall will fight for the rights of all workers and fight for a living wage. As a town official, I know that the policies that Steve supports will not only help the individual but also communities and small towns across the district.
