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.
