Americans United for Separation of Church and State - Long Island Chapter
Welcome to the Long Island Chapter of Americans United
Americans United for Separation of Church and State was founded in 1947 by religious, political and educational leaders in order to defend the most precious of our nation’s freedoms—the freedom of conscience. A national organization with a grassroots presence, Americans United brings together more than 80,000 individuals and 3,000 congregations of varying religious and non-religious viewpoints to publicly guard the constitutional guarantee of religious liberty and freedom of conscience. Americans United is the only national organization that devotes one-hundred percent of its time and resources to church/state separation. Through education and advocacy, Americans United works to preserve religious liberty and freedom of conscience as guaranteed by our Constitution.
The Long Island Chapter was formed in June, 2010, inspired in part by a panel discussion titled "Seperation Between Church and State: Civil Conversation on Controversial Issues" with Rev. Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State; Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, President of Interfaith Alliance; and Daniel Mach, Director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief.
The Long Island Chapter primarily serves Nassau and Suffolk Counties, as well as parts of eastern Queens.
