Americans United for the Separation of Church and State is a great and efficient organization. We are proud of our work to help make America safe and hospitable for people from all different religious backgrounds and those who have no religious tradition. It is vital to protect religious diversity!

As a lifelong supporter of religious freedom, I have worked with many groups who add church-state issues to their other goals. When I joined Americans United 10 years ago, I found the most professional, dedicated organization I'd ever been involved in. AU devotes 100% of its time exclusively to church-state issues, which include all the areas I am passionate about, from LGBT equality and women's rights to science literacy and supporting public schools. AU's Church & State Magazine is the only one of its kind, giving me important news related to church-state issues and problems.

AU has helped me as an activist by providing the tools I need to educate the public, to engage my elected officials, and to take action when Jefferson's Wall of Separation is threatened. I would not be the successful activist I am today without AU's support and guidance. I'm proud to be an AU Chapter Leader and I find our approach, of uniting the religious with the nonreligious, to be the best way to share the message about the importance of church-state separation.

Like most Americans, for many years I took separation of church and state for granted. Until I moved to the state where I live now. Here I have come to realize that there are actual individuals and radical, fundamentalist, religious organizations (many with lots of money) who are actively working to dismantle the greatest gift our Founders bequeathed to us: the separation of church and state. There is no freedom without this separation. And freedom, even as our understanding of the concept broadens and deepens, is what America is all about.

Since AU is the only organization that devotes all of its resources to church-state separation issues and since the Founders made it the first tenet of the First Amendment and since I believe all our freedoms flow from this separation, I answered the call when a chapter was formed in my area. I am now its President.

At our Chapter, each one of us is a volunteer and we all understand the importance of our volunteer work. It doesn't matter what you believe at AU, whether you are Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Hindu, Jew, Atheist, Skeptic, Agnostic or any of the over 2,000 different religious and philosophical worldviews, we come together to defend each other's right to believe or not believe what our conscience dictates. That's what it means to be an American. AU National and all of our Chapters are on the front line in defending this most precious right. And I would recommend you do anything you can to help.
