Sean Faircloth to Visit West Palm Beach in January 2014 with Action Plan to Create a Secular America


Faircloth takes a unique approach by teaming religious people who support church-state separation with those in the secular community, leading them in a combined effort to promote a more just, fair-minded, and positive government process.

Des Moines, IOWA (I-Newswire) January 3, 2014 - Sean Faircloth will present his action plan for returning America to its secular roots in a live presentation on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 6:30PM at the Main Branch of the Palm Beach Public Library in West Palm Beach, FL. The event is free and open to the public.

Author of Attack of the Theocrats, How the Religious Right Harms Us All & What We Can Do About It, Faircloth is President of Global Secular Strategy & Organizing (GSOS). As founder and head of GSOS, he is spearheading a national project called SecularityUSA, a specific, practical plan to remove religious bias from government. In his January 22nd presentation, he will share details of the plan, giving specific examples of how religious bias in government policy profoundly harms U.S. citizens - including religious citizens - and reinforcing the need to protect the rights of all denominations from such bias. He will share his vision for a secular America and invite audience questions and comments. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early as high attendance is expected and seating is limited.

Faircloth is the former Director of Strategy & Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science and served two years as Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America. In his book and in his work, Faircloth presents his Ten-Point Vision for a Secular America and lays out a specific plan to organize citizens for a world based on reason and science.

Faircloth has extensive organizing, lobbying and political experience at both the state and federal level. He served a decade in Maine's legislature, successfully spearheading more than 30 laws, many pertaining to child welfare and women's rights. He served on the Judiciary Committee, the Appropriations Committee, and was elected Majority Whip by his colleagues. He received numerous awards of recognition including the 2006 Legislator of the Year Award from the Maine People's Alliance and the 2005 Excellence in Advocacy Award from the American Heart Association's Northeast Affiliate. Before being elected to the Maine House of Representatives, he founded and managed the Maine Discovery Museum, the largest children's museum in New England outside Boston. Faircloth has extensive experience in political organizing and lobbying at both the state and federal level.
