Become a Secular Activist! Subscribe to receive Maryland chapter lobbying action alerts by email. Or, if you prefer, follow us on twitter (see bird icon on right) for very concise alerts. You can send emails to lawmakers, regulators, and others from the Secular Coalition for Maryland lobbying actions page (this page is updated most frequently from January through early April when the General Assembly is in session with updated continuing through May when the Governor signs and vetoes bills). If you also want to add content to this web page (anything deemed obsolete or inappropriate by the administrators of this web site will be deleted) then you can create a password for this web site. Check out the Upcoming Events for our next half hour conference call which is open to anyone who is interested. Lastly, you can sign up to ask about being a Maryland chapter volunteer with the Secular Coalition of America.
Despite the fact that there are tens of millions of nontheistic Americans, we remain one of the most marginalized groups in the country. Religious liberty is one of the basic tenets of secularism that we support, but accommodating some people's religious beliefs should not be allowed to take priority over other people's freedoms, civic equality, health, or safety. The Secular Coalition for America is working to make sure that we are heard on Capitol Hill. We fight 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 level. We need your help to see real change in Annapolis and across Maryland.
The SCMD, as a chapter of the SCA, brings together secular Americans to influence government officials, legislation, and regulations. Our focus is Maryland. Our exclusive purpose is lobbying government officials.
