The Maine Chapter of the Freedom from Religion Foundation works to defend the First Amendment’s freedom from religion and the separation of church and state.
We are a politically and socially activist organization that helps raise awareness of how everyone’s civil rights are in jeopardy when laws favor one religion or religion over non-belief by participating in the Portland Pride Parade every year in solidarity with the LGBT community. We also have a table and give a talk at the Common Ground Community Fair in Unity every year, give talks exposing that the Good News Club’s real agenda is to convert children to their peculiar interpretation of the Bible, and give secular invocations to the Maine Senate and House.
The Maine Chapter is an open and welcoming community. We invite all people who support the separation of church and state regardless of religious faith, secular principles, nationality, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age, or ability.
Remember – “No one can do everything but everyone can do something” and “Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.” In the immortal words of Bayard Rustin, the openly gay Black man who organized the 1963 March on Washington, “The proof that one truly believes is in action.” Together we can make a difference.
