According to Gallup, 46.5 percent of the Massachusetts population is now nonreligious; and Boston-Cambridge-Quincy is among the ten least religious of all the 189 metro areas studied by Gallup, as of 2013.
It is the goal of the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts to coordinate the efforts of this huge number of secular Massachusetts citizens to influence officials, legislation, and regulations in the cause of separation of church and state and equality before the law. In the course of this work, we collaborate closely with our supporters in dozens of local campus, congregational, and community groups.
The SCMA is unlike any other nontheistic state organization. We bring together interested organizations and individuals for the exclusive purpose of lobbying government officials. In order to make a real impact in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth, we need the help of every interested individual. You can begin your support by signing up for our SCMA mailing list, joining one of our monthly organizing calls, making a donation to the SCA (memo line, "SCMA"), or by becoming more involved with one of our supporting groups.
Though we may identify differently as Humanist or Atheist or Nontheist or Skeptic, we are united in our common cause for a government that respects the separation of church and state, and the civic rights of all its citizens.
