Elections, Campaigns, Issues, and Candidates: Secular Humanist Perspectives and PACs!


April 12, 2016


Rabbi Binyamin Biber, Humanist Chaplain—American University, (202) 885-3320, [email protected] 

Come learn about the groups like the Secular Coalition for America, the Center for Inquiry’s Office of Public Policy, and others – all of which are involved in developing and advancing a broad secular humanist policy agenda in the US: some of which endorse and support candidates for office.

WHO: The American University Humanist Community and Humanist Chaplaincy

WHERE: Kay Spiritual Life Center Lounge (downstairs); American University, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington DC, 20016.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 13th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm

WHY: Candidates for national, state, and local offices have many of us wondering about the health of our country–the world’s first secular democracy–separating religious and government authority structures. Join Chaplain Biber in exploring and discussing the issues being debated this election year: Muslim refugees, immigration, income injustice, reproductive healthcare access, LGBTQ rights, public funding of religious schools and nonprofits, college tuition and access, cultural pluralism, and so much more.
