Secular Advocacy Day

Be a part of Secular Advocacy Day and make your voice heard!

Organized by the Secular Coalition for California, we'll gather on Monday (October 13th) from 8:30 AM - 5 PM to make a difference in our state and local government. Sign up for this special event and help us change the face of politics.

Our Secular Advocacy Day meeting location will be announced to all those who register in advance. Registration closes

Training Included

The day will start with a little training. You don't have to be a seasoned lobbyist or even have the slightest notion about politics. When our class is done, you and others in your team will know exactly what to say and where you're headed.

Advocacy Efforts

After training, we'll visit the offices of our elected officials to represent the secular community. In groups of two or three, you'll put your new training to use as you explain the importance of secular values.

Please expect to be with us on Monday, from 8:30 AM - 5 PM.

Tom Manger, Secular Coalition for California

Tom MangerTom Manger, the Legislative Chair for the Secular Coalition for California (SCCA), will be speaking on secular activism in California. The SCCA has had a number of successes helping to minimize religious bias and religious privileging in new legislation. In this talk, Tom will give a wrap up of 2014 California legislation from a secular perspective. He will also talk about activities planned for 2015 and ways you can assist in not just enforcing the separation of church and state, but ways to reverse the many ways that religion is unduly privileged in existing laws.

Tom will be also speaking at Freethought Day, just after lunch.
