MEDIA ALERT: Secular Coalition to Release Model Policy Guide Monday

Washington, DC–The Secular Coalition for America will release its Model Secular Policy Guide for legislatures Monday morning on Capitol Hill in two Hill briefings. The “Model” Guide launch events will feature actual runway models.

The Secular Coalition’s Policy Guide is a collaboration of the entire nontheistic movement, endorsed by 86 nontheistic, secular and affiliated organizations across the country. The guide covers a multitude of issues affecting secular and nontheistic Americans in public life including health policy, science education, tax exemptions, religiously-based discrimination, and the treatment of nontheists in the military, among others.

The Model Policy Guide is meant to help educate legislators on the views of secular and nontheistic Americans on pertinent issues, and includes historical background and legal precedent. It will be distributed to every office on Capitol Hill, state legislative offices across the country and will also be available on the Coalition’s website following the launch events.

Refreshments will include chocolate covered strawberries, light hors d’oeuvres and sparkling cider, and will be served to attendees by runway models
