Details

Sarah Levin, Director of Grassroots and Community Programs at the Secular Coalition for America (SCA), will share updates from SCA's lobbying team on Capitol Hill and present SCA's Secular Values Voter campaign, a long-term vision to build and mobilize a cohesive, influential secular voting bloc united by shared secular values. This action- oriented presentation is geared toward individuals and community organizers looking for ways to get more involved in political advocacy.

Sarah Levin graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies from American University, where she served as president of the university’s Secular Student Alliance affiliate. Since joining the Secular Coalition in 2013, she has managed and grown the Secular Coalition’s state advocacy program and implemented various grassroots campaigns on the national and state level, including: the 2014 “Knit a Brick” campaign to protest the Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision; the 2015 (now annual) Bad Bill Madness; and a new political party organizing initiative, launched in 2016 when the first ever Secular Caucus was established at the Texas Democratic Convention and three secular policy resolutions were incorporated into the party platform. Prior to joining the Secular Coalition, Sarah completed her AmeriCorps service by serving low-income immigrant and refugee families as a community liaison at the Greenbrier Learning Center in Arlington, Virginia.
