Be a part of Secular Advocacy Day and make your voice heard!


Your $10 registration (free for students) helps us with the day's planning and facilitation, including expert guidance from Secular Strategies.

You must register in advance so that we can capture your address which will allow us to connect you to your elected officials..

Registration closes early, so please register soon.


This year's Secular Advocacy Day will occur online, and be compatible with your desktop, laptop, or smartphone. We suggest you attend from somewhere comfortable and quiet.

Links to join will be sent to all registered guests in advance.


After joining the online meeting, the day will start with a little training. You don't have to be a seasoned lobbyist or even have the slightest notion about politics. When we're done, you'll know exactly what to say.

Later that morning you and others from your district will be directly connected with your elected officials (or a staff member from their office) for a short meeting to express your views.

Following your meeting, you can return to our virtual lobby to mingle with the others.

Advocating for Contraception Equity and Healthcare Transparency

In support of contraceptive equity and healthcare transparency, we’re arranging meetings with your elected state officials on the morning of Monday, October 11. We are promoting two bills:

SB523 aims to provide birth control options and contraceptive benefits to state employees and UC students. It also provides no-cost birth control to Californians who were denied coverage by their religiously-affiliated employer.

The CHTA, written by our sponsor American Atheists, would require health care systems in California that deny care on the basis of religion to be transparent with patients and the public about their policies.

You can see why we’re interested in these bills and excited to connect you with your state lawmakers.
