About Us

Secular AZ is a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization that  protects the constitutional separation of church and state and educates lawmakers and the public to ensure freedom of conscience for Arizonans of all faiths and of none.

Secular AZ was formed in 2010 to ensure a secular state government and to educate lawmakers and the public about the importance of secular issues.

We advocate on behalf of all individuals who believe that public policy free of religious preference is the best way to ensure freedom of conscience for Arizonans of all faiths and of none — as is required by both the U.S. Constitution (Bill of Rights, First Amendment) and the Arizona State Constitution (Article II, Section 12).

We also represent the Arizona nontheistic community – a vibrant and growing community of Arizonans who self-identify as atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, "nones," and other labels of personal choosing. We work to ensure that the law is never biased to the detriment of or against the interests of Arizona's nontheists as required in the Arizona state Constitution.

Secular AZ is operated by a board of directors and executive staff, and receives policy influence and comment from diverse liaised secular groups throughout Arizona. Collectively, these organizations represent thousands of individuals.
