The IGWT License Plate Issue – What You Need to Know

Humanists all over the state have contacted the MHA about Mississippi’s standard license plates that display “In God We Trust.” To get a plate that doesn’t display this religious message, state residents have to pay extra for a specialty plate. We understand why our members are so upset about this, and we have been fighting hard behind the scenes to provide an additional option at no extra cost for Mississippi residents.

Get the details on how the fight started and where we are now.

Mississippi Humanist Group Supports Challenge to “In God We Trust” License Plates

The Mississippi Humanist Association (MHA) is pleased to announce the American Humanist Association (AHA) has sent a demand letter to Mississippi state officials requesting a free alternative to the standard license plates that display “In God We Trust.” Currently, MS residents who do not wish to display the phrase “In God We Trust” on their license plates must purchase specialty plates at an additional cost.

Why What’s on our Money Matters

If you’ve been following the news, you may have seen that a group of atheists are suing the Federal Government to have the words “In God We Trust” taken off of our money.

A Week Ago...

A week ago, I woke up to find the governor of the state of Mississippi showing once again, in so many ways, that he doesn’t value all of his constituents. Last week, the governor was a welcome guest of the American Family Association (AFA), a Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated extremist hate group that denounces those that do not share their religious beliefs, especially the LGBTQ community. Just by way of his appearance on this radio program, he tells us which Mississippians he values and serves.
