I’ve started a new organization called the Coalition of Secular Voters.

While there are other groups out there, such as FFRF, Secular Coalition for America, and Americans United, etc., this group and this website fill a very specific niche and need.

This group and website are focused specifically on issues of voting and legislation, namely encouraging citizens who support separation of church and state to vote and get involved in the legislative process at every level, and in providing a means for such voters to stay informed about the latest legislative issues in their local areas as well as at the national level.

http://www.secularvoters.org/

I hope that everyone who supports the mission of this group will at least join the website, even if you don’t plan to contribute content, because part of building a coalition is building numbers that politicians can see are important. Not only is the mission of this group to help secular voters become more active voters, but also to make the secular voting community more visible and thus influential.

I regularly follow Americans United so I will certainly give your website a try.  Thanks.

I will echo PaineMan’s response.  The site looks to me like a good thing.  I hope that it takes off in a positive direction.

I’m working on adding more content, and hopefully users will start posting to the blogs as well. Its a user driven site concept, so it just requires some critical mass and users who contribute. smile

I just joined. Maybe I’ll think of a decent topic to start a discussion.
