Media Advisory: Edwina Rogers Available for Interview at RNC in Tampa Through Thursday
Rogers is a long-time Republican lobbyist with decades of experience on Capitol Hill. Rogers has worked for two Republican Presidents and four Republican Senators. She now leads the Secular Coalition for America, a nonprofit lobbying group that represents atheists, agnostics, humanists and other nontheistic Americans. The Secular Coalition represents 11 member organizations that represent nontheists, from the Society for Humanistic Judaism to American Atheists.
The Secular Coalition for America focuses on lobbying at the federal level to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government. This summer, the Secular Coalition began rolling out chapters in all 50 states that will train and support citizens to lobby state lawmakers on issues of interest to the nontheistic community and to raise the respect for and visibility of nontheistic viewpoints.
For the first time this year, the Secular Coalition for America is in attendance at the Republican National Convention, where Rogers is focused on educating Republican lawmakers and thought leaders on nontheistic issues. The Secular Coalition for America affirms that the best guarantee of freedom for all Americans-religious and nonreligious-is a strong separation of church and state and that secularism is a nonpartisan issue.
Please contact the Secular Coalition for comments from Rogers or to schedule an interivew.
