California

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 a federal level, yet some of the most egregious violations of separation of church and state are being promoted and passed at a state level. Our chapter brings together secular Californians to influence government officials, legislation, and regulations.

We need your help to see real change in Sacramento and across California.

The California State Legislature's 2015 session is moving along quickly, and the Secular Coalition for California is working hard to ensure that the perspective of the millions of secular voters in this state are heard.

There are several areas where you can help:

1) Support SB 128 End of Life Options Act
This bill would allow terminally ill adult patients who meet certain requirements to request medication to end their life on their terms. Keep updated via Compassion & Choices CA. You can also express your support for this bill by sending a letter to your legislators.

2) Support SB 277 Public Health: Vaccinations
This bill would repeal the personal belief exemption from immunization requirements. Keep updated via Vaccinate CaliforniaComplete this easy form to send a letter of support for vaccine science and public health. (You fill out the form once and they'll deliver letters to the right committee members and representatives at each step of the process.)

3) Sign up for email action alerts and follow us on facebook. Also, we are an all volunteer run chapter, please email us if you're interested in volunteering.
