The popularity of After School Satan Clubs has been steadily rising, and there are no signs of it slowing down as supporters continue to garner media attention and legal victories in their fight for free speech.
These clubs, affiliated with the Satanic Temple and exclusively available in elementary schools, emerged at the start of 2020 and quickly attracted the interest of parents seeking an alternative to religious clubs.
June Everett, the campaign director of the After School Satan Club, highlighted this parental demand, The Hill has reported.
Recently, on Monday, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania ruled in favor of the Satanic Temple and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in a lawsuit against a Northampton County school district.
The lawsuit was filed after the school district denied the club the right to meet on its premises. This legal victory further bolsters the momentum and visibility of After School Satan Clubs.
