Sean Faircloth will be joining us. He is Executive Director of the Secular Coalition of America. The Secular Coalition for America lobbies on behalf of secular Americans -- atheists, agnostics, humanists and other freethinkers -- in Washington, D.C. Sean served ten years in the Maine legislature before becoming executive director of the Secular Coalition for America. He will be giving a talk titled "One Nation Under the Constitution: A Vision of a Secular America." His speech will discuss how theocratically based injustices in American law are not a historical artifact -- but rather a stark current reality. He argues that Americans have a moral obligation to address these injustices through rejuvenation of our government's secular heritage and secular legal system.
This event will be followed by a special grassroots lobbying training session.
