The Atlas Advocates

The Atlas Society promotes Ayn Rand’s philosophy of reason, individualism, productivity, achievement, benevolent self-interest and freedom through animated videos, graphic novels, pocket guides and creative digital media.

Designed as a guide to life, Ayn Rand’s ideas celebrate the remarkable potential and power of the individual. Her philosophy, Objectivism, provides insights into politics, art, education, foreign policy, science and more... rewarding you, the individual, with a rich understanding of how ideas can shape your world.

If you’re in your 20’s and interested in connecting with other young people across the world who hold similar beliefs - then you’re in the right place.

Program Outline

The Atlas Advocates get together twice a month over Zoom - either to discuss a book or to deep dive into a particular topic and will typically be joined by a special guest.  You can also receive copies of our graphic novels to promote in your local community by donating to your school, library, food bank, or neighborhood Free Little Library.

Incentives

As an active member in the program, you’ll have the chance to redeem one, two or all three of the following options: 

  • Attend our annual black-tie fundraiser for free
  • Choose to be featured in a member spotlight interview, conducted by our literary editor and which will be shared on our website and social media. (Good option if you have a book you’re trying to promote or if advocating for a particular goal/mission)
  • An hour of consulting/mentorship with our CEO, Founder or Senior Scholar.

Book Club

The first component to our student program is participating in our book club. Every month young people from across the world - some young professionals, some college students, some involved in other liberty organizations (it’s a very diverse group) - all get together on a week night to discuss a book (usually non-fiction).

This club opportunity launched in June 2020 and has grown substantially. Our reading selection so far has consisted of the following: 

  • October -  Apocalypse Never by Michael Shellenberger
  • September - Pocket Guide to Postmodernism by Andrew Colgan & Stephen Hicks 
  • August - The Case Against Socialism by Rand Paul
  • July - Little Black Stretchy Pants by Chip Wilson
  • June - The Future Is Faster Than You Think by Peter Diamandis

*After signing up on the contact form, you will be contacted with the link to register for the Zoom discussion meeting.

Symposiums

The second component of this program includes the chance to participate in a monthly interactive symposium specifically designed to be unique, relevant and social.

Atlas Advocate symposiums will be more interactive and intimate as the attendees will usually have the chance to interact with the speaker directly.
 
When The Atlas Society launches a new animated video, Atlas Advocates will get the chance to premier the video before it is released to the general public. Someone from the production team (script writer, film crew, producer, voice over, illustrator) will join the symposium to answer any questions about the video or their creative role in the process.

Advocate for The Atlas Society!

The third component of this program is for those who are looking for an even more active role in the organization. The mission of The Atlas Society is to introduce Ayn Rand’s philosophy to as many young minds as possible. Part of that strategy involves placing ANTHEM: The Graphic Novel and RED PAWN: The Graphic Novel (Scheduled release November 2020!!!) into schools, local libraries, food banks and Free Little Libraries. We will provide you with copies of the book and the tools you need to complete this outreach.

ANTHEM: The Graphic Novel
