What we're about

The purpose of this group is to discuss ways of preserving our First Amendment freedom of religious conscience, and upholding Jefferson's Wall of Separation between church and state.

DVAU President Janice Rael (http://churchandstate.meetup.com/48/members/77789/) is on the Board of the Delaware Valley Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State (http://dvau.org). DVAU thanks Church and State Meetup Organizer George (http://churchandstate.meetup.com/48/members/1204837/)for allowing DVAU to share our chapter events, and other events of interest to advocates of church-state separation.

This Meetup is NOT an official group of Delaware Valley AU, although DVAU is heavily promoted here.
