What we're about
If you are an action-oriented individual who celebrates the religious and philosophical diversity of the United States and supports a nation where all people may peacefully worship, or not, as their consciences dictates, you have found your group. We are a relatively new chapter (July 2016) of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, the first such chapter in New Mexico. AU is a Religion-neutral, Non-partisan organization where the only "qualification" for joining is the belief that our secular government and religion should not mix.
Our goal, as activists, is to defend the critical “wall of separation” between government and religion. We will educate the public regarding the importance of the Constitutional guarantee of Church/State separation. As a chapter, we are a grassroots presence in NM and serve as the eyes and ears of AU for the defense of religious liberty in the local community. Though we are based in Albuquerque, issues across NM are in our purview.
As a chapter, we are action oriented, focusing on issues that directly affect the New Mexican Citizenry. Our major thrust for now is the New Mexico Legislation with respect to Options in Dying. This is not in lieu of other pressing topics that affect New Mexico. So join us (Chapter #127 in New Mexico) in keeping the United States of America a diverse secular country which embraces an individual's right to worship, or not, but never attempts to breach the all important Separation of Church and State.
Please join us on Facebook @ AUSCS New Mexico, as well. We'd love for you to "like" us.
