The Delaware Valley Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State (DVAU) is proud to welcome our longtime friend and volunteer, Bill Flynn, to a position as an at-large member of the DVAU Board of Directors. Bill leads several secular groups in South Jersey, including Camden County Humanists. To contact him, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is Bill Flynn’s bio, please join us in welcoming him to the DVAU Board!
William (Bill) Flynn is a social and political activist from New Jersey, where he has lived all of his life. As an Atheistic Humanist, William has been active in the world of Humanism for several years. William founded The South Jersey Skeptics group, now 100-members strong, in 2012. William has a skill for bringing people together and establishing a peaceful yet thought-provoking dialogue on any issue. In 2013, William created The Camden County Humanists, a New Jersey chapter of The American Humanist Association. Motivated by Humanist principles to do some good in community, he quickly became involved in charity work, organizing events to help raise money for various causes. Under Bill’s leadership, Camden County Humanists has raised close to $3,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma society for their Light the Night walks, which he and fellow members have participated in. Aside from organizing fundraising events for Light The Night, William Flynn and The Camden County Humanists have also been involved in NJ AIDS Walk in Atlantic City two years in a row, and was featured on Foundation Beyond Belief’s website for their hard work and CCH’s presence at the 2015 NJ AIDS Walk.
Passionate about the work he does and the difference it makes, William created a third group called “The South Jersey Atheists,” a Meetup group that currently has over 90 members and provides an alternative for those Atheists in South Jersey who can’t venture into Philadelphia to attend Atheist Meetups in the City. An excellent multitasker, William has been volunteering for the Delaware Valley Americans United Chapter since 2012. William has worked with DVAU leader Janice Rael for over 3 years, tabling events and organizing Chapter meetups with guest speakers.
In 2015, William was invited to Boston to attend Foundation Beyond Belief’s Humanism at Work National Conference for an “Honorable Mention” for the work he has done this past year. William has established himself in the NJ Humanist community as a passionate and dedicated individual, and he looks forward to providing the same level of passion and dedication as a new member of the Board of Directors of the Delaware Valley Americans United Chapter.
