Join AU For A National Call-In Day To Support Church-State Separation And Oppose Barrett

  Rob Boston

Americans United and several of its allies will be taking part in an effort tomorrow to generate as many calls as possible to U.S. senators urging them to vote against the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We hope you’ll join us!

The event is a National Call-In Day for Church-State Separation. You can participate by calling your senators and asking them to oppose Barrett’s confirmation. We’re using a simple “click to call” tool that gives you everything you need to make the call. The tool will connect you with the offices of your senators based on your address and even provides a sample script of what to say. (If you’d rather not use the tool, you can contact your senators by calling the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.)

We’ve also have put together a toolkit of materials, including social media graphics, sample emails and tweets so you can help us spread the word. For Twitter fans, the hashtag is #OurCourt.

During the National Call-In Day for Church-State Separation, we want to spread that message that while Barrett’s personal faith is not relevant, her record certainly is – and that record is alarming. Barrett does not respect the constitutional principle of separation of religion and government. If she secures a lifetime seat on the high court, she could jeopardize the rights of LGBTQ people, people seeking access to birth control, religious minorities, the non-religious and others. (Read more about Barrett’s disturbing record in this report prepared by Americans United.)

Several allied organizations will be joining Americans United in this effort, among them American Atheists, American Ethical Union, American Humanist Association, Freedom from Religion Foundation, Jews for a Secular Democracy and Secular Coalition for America.

Please lift up your voice by taking part!

Americans United & the National Women’s Law Center file suit to challenge Missouri’s abortion bans.

Abortion bans violate the separation of church and state. Americans United and the National Women’s Law Center—the leading experts in religious freedom and gender justice—have joined forces with thirteen clergy from six faith traditions to challenge Missouri’s abortion bans as unconstitutionally imposing one narrow religious doctrine on everyone.
