As a nonbeliever, do you wonder why politicians are so inclusive toward religion and ignore atheists? It’s because we don’t knock on their doors and demand the attention and respect our numbers warrant. Learn how to raise your voice for secularism and make a real impact at the 2014 Public Policy Summit and Lobby Day, taking place in Washington, DC, June 12-14, run by our ally, the Secular Coalition for America.
Join some of the brightest stars of the secular movement for information on the intersection of science, religion, politics and the law. Learn how the promotion of science can have a positive impact on public policy debates over climate change, reproductive rights, and LGBTQ rights. You’ll be introduced to new skills and refine old ones, such as how to write an effective press release, organize campaigns that build relationships with the media, and get to the next level on social media.
You’ll not only gain the tools to make a difference in your state and nationwide, you’ll also have great fun and find inspiration by meeting with other secular activists. Bring your business cards on Friday to network with prestigious speakers and workshop leaders, including staff from the Richard Dawkins Foundation.
This event by the Secular Coalition for America is intended to get atheists and other nonbelievers to stand up and demand politicians acknowledge us as the important constituency we are. Of course, if you’ll be traveling from out of town, it’s your chance to explore the capital, with its free museums and where many secular groups have their nationwide headquarters. We are looking forward to meeting you!
