The Secular Coalition for Rhode Island, headquartered in Rhode Island, is a chapter of the Secular Coalition for America (www.Secular.org), a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization headquartered in Washington DC whose purpose is to amplify the diverse and growing voice of the nontheistic community in the United States.
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 level. We need your help to see real change in Providence and across Rhode Island.
The Secular Coalition for America is forming state chapters across the country. Our chapters will bring together secular Americans in each state to influence government officials, legislation, and regulations. A Secular Coalition for America state chapter is unlike any other nontheistic state organization—it brings together interested organizations and individuals for the exclusive purpose of lobbying government officials.
