Free Secular Woman Membership for Students
While many of you were on summer break, a new secular organization was born. Secular Women, whose mission is to amplify the voice, presence, and influence of non-religious women, is offering student members of the SSA and its campus affiliates free annual memberships from now through October 15th. Women, men, and genderqueer students are all welcome. Join now at: http://www.secularwoman.org/ssa.
Secular Woman maintains an all-female speakers bureau, awards travel grants, and hosts a members-only Facebook group for lively discussion of feminism and secularism. Partnering with the SSA for this membership drive is one way Secular Woman hopes to make secularism more accessible and rewarding for women both on-campus and off. Don't miss your chance for a free annual membership!
Endorse Secular Coalition for America
The mission of the Secular Coalition for America is to increase the visibility of and respect for nontheistic viewpoints in the United States, and to protect and strengthen the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all. Now local groups - including campus groups! - can sign on to endorse this mission. Campus groups endorsing SCA's mission statement helps SCA make the case to lawmakers that the secular movement should be taken seriously. Endorsing the mission statement is free and easy, and your group is listed along with dozens of other organizations here.
SCA would be honored to have your campus group endorse their mission statement. You can sign up in just a few minutes here.
