About the Secular Coalition for America
The Secular Coalition for America is the nation's premier advocacy organization representing atheists, humanists, agnostics, and other nontheists.
Located in Washington, D.C., the Secular Coalition for America lobbies the U.S. Congress, White House, and federal agencies on issues of concern to our constituency. We have built strong ties with other national organizations where common ground exists on specific topics, and are active participants in influential coalitions.
In addition to our federal activities, the Secular Coalition for America coordinates activities with and provides resources to local secular communities across the country.
Our mission is to increase the visibility of and respect for nontheistic viewpoints in the United States and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all.
The Secular Coalition for America is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to amplifying the diverse and growing voice of the nontheistic community in the United States. Our 19 voting member organizations are established 501(c)(3) nonprofits who serve atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers and other nontheistic Americans.
Since our founding in 2002, the goal of the Secular Coalition has been to provide nontheistic Americans a unified voice in Washington. Today, we continue this mission by facilitating cooperation and strategic coordination between our 19 member organizations. Additionally, our member organizations provide valuable input on our Model Secular Policy Guide as well as our Legislative and Executive Branch Agenda (LEBA).
