                                                         Secular Coalition for Alabama

Despite the fact that there are tens of millions of nontheistic Americans, we remain one of the most marginalized groups in the country.  The Secular Coalition for America is working to make sure that we are heard on Capitol Hill. We fight in Washington DC against religious privileging on a federal level, yet some of the most egregious violations of separation of church and state are being promoted and passed at a state levelWe need your help to see real change in state capitals all over the country. 

The Secular Coalition for Alabama is a currently operating independent affiliated organization of the Secular Coalition for America operated by truly dedicated people. We feel the ease of the chapter model increases the possibility for success in every state and are moving forward with chapters only; however, the Secular Coalition for America will still host state conference calls for individuals in Alabama who want to stay informed or get more involved.
