About the Secular Coalition for America
Since 2002 the Secular Coalition for America has been the voice of millions of atheist, agnostic, humanist and other nontheistic Americans on Capitol Hill.
Representing more than 200 secular organizations across the country, including 17 voting member organizations, the Secular Coalition lobbies at the federal level to increase the visibility of and respect for nontheistic viewpoints in the United States, and to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all.
The Secular Coalition is available for comment on a wide range of issues facing nontheists in America, as well as important legislative or political matters that affect the separation of religion and government.
For journalist inquiries, including scheduling an interview with Secular Coalition for America national spokespersons, or to be added to the SCA’s press distribution list, contact Interim Executive Director, Kelly Damerow, at (202)299-1091 ext. 207, or [email protected]
