Organizations Focused on Protecting the Separation of Church and State
I believe these are among the most important secular organizations we can support because their missions center on secularism itself (i.e., they are focused on church-state issues).
- Freedom From Religion Foundation
- Americans United for the Separation of Church and State
- Secular Coalition for America
In the U.S., public schools are often where Christian extremists seek to exert their influence. These organizations serve vital functions such as promoting reality-based science education and organizing secular students to educate others and defend their rights.
Community is vital for those who make up a small minority within a much larger system. The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers is a prime example of an organization who makes this their main goal.
The organizations listed here are somewhat more difficult to classify because they have adopted broad missions of advocacy on a number of secular issues.
