My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Washington, DC, USA
I’ve been an active member since 2004 but I have been committed to the separation of church and state for a very long time. I was raised in England and then moved to Israel before I came to the USA. I became a US citizen the first moment I could – and the main reason I wanted to do this was the constitutional protection of separation of church and state! Neither England nor Israel has this. In England, as a member of a minority religion, I was always made to feel second class in school. I don’t want to see that for anyone living in this great country.
What I love about AU is that it protects all of us and it ensures that we as a nation retain neutrality on religion while supporting everyone whether they are atheist or evangelical. At AU we all get a seat at the table! Our political affiliations don’t matter, our religious affiliations don’t matter and nor does our bank account.
I was very proud to start a chapter of AU in Orange County (California) and I am indebted to the staff at AU in Washington. Not only Barry Lynn who has been supportive of our chapter with his time but also and especially the Field Department – Beth Corbin, Steven Baines and David Morris do a phenomenal job supporting the chapter.
I am also happy to be a donor to this group and feel that my monthly donations are put to good use whether through the Field Group, the Legal Group (truly awesome) or the Legislative Group. The support of these different groups who work together to promote our first amendment rights is what makes AU special.
