What is an endorsing organization?
An endorsing organization is an established group that supports the mission (below) of the Secular Coalition for America and its state chapters. The Secular Coalition is the only 501(c)(4) organization dedicated entirely to lobbying at the federal and state level on behalf of secular Americans. With the endorsement of organizations like yours, we can demonstrate the strength and numbers of the secular community when speaking with elected officials and candidates.
“Our mission is to increase visibility of and respect for nontheistic viewpoints in the United States, and to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all.”
