Party Crashers

We’re Crashing the Party

As a nonpartisan organization representing secular voters across the political spectrum, the Secular Coalition for America is committed to giving our constituency a voice and a seat at the table in the political arena.  Secular voters belong to every political party and we want to elevate their voices across the political spectrum. Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Green, you can help us bring secular values to your party.

A case study in party crashing

In May 2016, the Secular Coalition for Texas submitted six resolutions to eleven county precinct conventions, three of which were adopted and later referred to the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention. The Committee unanimously voted to incorporate the resolutions as clauses in the official Texas Democratic Platform. The clauses include a resolution to repeal religious exemptions to child protection laws; a resolution to strike language from the state Constitution that bars nontheists from holding office; and a resolution supporting secular reproductive health care policies.

A day before the resolutions were approved, the Secular Coalition for Texas hosted first ever Secular Caucus at the Texas Democratic Convention. The caucus educated Texas Democrats about the nonreligious, who now comprise more than one-quarter of the entire Democratic party and one-quarter of all Americans.

What do party crashers do?

Party crashers get Secular Caucuses off the ground, recruit fellow secular party activists to get involved, plan events, give presentations at local chapter meetings, meet with party leadership to brief them on secular issues, table at political conventions, get out the vote, submit policy planks/resolutions for the party platform, and much more.

How do I get involved?

There are only three requirements for getting involved:

1. You are registered with either the Green, Democratic, Libertarian, or Republican party

2. You are active within your party (i.e. you attend meetings, hold a leadership position, or have participated in campaigns)

3. You’re a go-getter who’s ready to get to work!
