Washington, D.C. – 2021’s Secular Week of Action is just a month away! Every year, the secular movement comes together to create change in our local communities and provide a relevant alternative to the National Day of Prayer (May 6, 2021). Our coalition spends a whole week organizing service projects and volunteering as individuals — increasing the visibility of secular people and helping improve our world.
This year, because of the dramatic increase in food insecurity and homelessness as a result of the pandemic, we’re especially encouraging groups to focus on those critical issues, but any service is encouraged throughout the week of April 30 – May 9.
Here at the Secular Coalition for America, our staff will be partnering with Capital Area Food Bank located in Northeast Washington, D.C.
