Secular Coalition for America 

This Is the Moment We Turn the Tide

Don't Miss This Historic Summit: May 19-22, 2011
Ten Years From Now You'll Be Proud You Participated

The 2011 Secular Coalition for America Biennial Strategic Summit is now open for registration! We want you to be there, May 19-22, 2011 in Washington, DC.

Our member organizations put on excellent conferences and conventions. This is something different. This will be a participatory summit; a meeting of leaders, activists and thinkers from the secular movement to collaborate, network, and strategize – with you! – about how to develop and strengthen a nationally influential coalition.

DC at NightClick here to register now!

The Secular Coalition for America Strategic Summit is your chance to have a genuine impact on the future of our movement as we work to bring reason into (and take religious bias out of) government. It's time for all of us in the nontheistic community to roll up our sleeves, recognize that there are theocratic forces at work in America that need to be confronted, and get to work.   

Kyrsten SinemaFeatured among the summit's participants will be Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a secular legislator from Arizona, recently highlighted by Time Magazine as one of their "40 under 40"; young rising stars in American politics. Rep. Sinema will be the special guest at an exclusive reception Friday afternoon May 20, 2010. 

We've reserved a hotel with a beautiful view of the U.S. Capitol, and all that Washington, DC has to offer in terms of culture, activities, and nightlife will be waiting for you.

Don't miss this chance to be part of something of historic importance, when your ideas and expertise can help turn the tide toward realizing the goals of the Our Secular Decade plan. If you don't come, ten years down the line you'll wish you had.

Register early to take advantage of special discounts so you can take part in all of what this summit will have to offer, including but not by any means limited to:
  • A lobby day where you help make our case on Capitol Hill
  • Sessions for communications professionals within our movement who will discuss strategy collaboratively
  • Sessions for lawyers and legal minds within our movement who will discuss strategy collaboratively
  • And most importantly: You will directly participate in analyzing our plan, and crafting specific suggestions for exactly how we continue to implement and improve specific tactics within our strategic plan
The Our Secular Decade plan can be found here, and we will provide more specifics to participants before the summit. This is a working summit and we will ask participants to read a more detailed strategic plan in advance so we are prepared together to improve it.

Religious extremists in our politics and culture have been gaining steam. They must be met with a smarter and better-prepared secular movement with a pragmatic, ambitious, strategic plan. There has never been a more crucial moment for us to energize our movement with a specific and substantive strategy.
Are you standing on the sidelines? Or do you plan to participate?

So what are you waiting for? Register NOW to take advantage of "early bird" discounts, and join us in Washington, DC. We need you there.
