Model Secular Policy Guide for Legislatures
The Secular Coalition’s Model Secular Policy Guide is a collaboration of the entire nontheistic movement, endorsed by 86 nontheistic, secular and affiliated organizations across the country. The guide covers a multitude of issues affecting secular and nontheistic Americans in public life including health policy, science education, tax exemptions, religiously-based discrimination, and the treatment of nontheists in the military, among others.
The Model Policy Guide is meant to help educate legislators on the views of secular and nontheistic Americans on pertinent issues, and includes historical background and legal precedent. It was distributed to every office on Capitol Hill and to selected state legislative offices across the country.
Areas of focus include:
- Health and Safety
- Tax Policy
