Sean Faircloth Stepping Down as Executive Director
Sean Faircloth has stepped down as Executive Director for the Secular Coalition for America. Herb Silverman, President of the Secular Coalition, and Sean Faircloth, now Policy & Strategy Director of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, both comment on Sean’s departure.
Letter from Herb Silverman, President of the Secular Coalition for America:
On behalf of the Secular Coalition for America, I’d like to thank Sean Faircloth for all he has done in the past two years as Executive Director of our organization. He conceived of our plan for a secular decade, and started our growth toward fifty state secular coalitions.
Sean’s oratory skill, enthusiasm and ideas have inspired many who have attended his talks around the country. His vision and dynamic ideas are contained in his soon-to-be published book, Attack of the Theocrats: How the Religious Right Harms Us All—and What We Can Do About It. I’m confident the book will motivate all kinds of secular Americans to join our cause and become secular activists, as Sean has succeeding in doing with his speeches.
We are thrilled that Sean will be opening speaker for Richard Dawkins’ book tour later this month, and that Sean is now the Policy & Strategy Director of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. This will help make the relationship between our two organizations even closer as we cooperate and work together on behalf of all secular Americans.
Thanks, Sean, for all you have done, and for all you will continue to do for our movement.
With best wishes,
President, Secular Coalition for America
Letter from Sean Faircloth, former Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America:
I want to thank the Board of Directors of the Secular Coalition for America for the opportunity to work with them as their Executive Director for the past two years. It has been an honor to work with this organization and on this important cause. I am particularly proud of my work crafting the Secular Decade plan and moving it forward in all aspects, including the fifty state strategy. In my new position at the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science I will continue strategic planning, policy leadership, and public speaking efforts on behalf of secularism and I will continue to work with SCA and all secular groups, in the United States and abroad. I wish SCA the best and will continue to strive for our movement to take an optimistic and positive approach to secularism.
