Hello Secular Supporter,

Arizona’s 55th Legislature tested whether separation of church and state will continue to be a constitutional protection or turn into a constitutional violation.

Republicans were resolved to promote their faith in every area of public life. Democrats mostly—though not always—heeded constitutional mandates barring the establishment of religion.

Last week, we released our Legislative Scorecard ranking lawmakers in terms of their support for separation of church and state. With many people still deliberating on their ballots for the August primary, we also just rounded up a brief report on which state Democrats voted against party lines on Christian nationalist bills in 2022.

The outcome of the midterm elections will decide whether Arizona is governed as a democracy or a theocracy—and it rests upon the civic participation of secular voters and citizens who value fundamental civil liberties. If you still have your ballot, take a moment to educate yourself on the issues and vote.


Looking for Secular Officiants!

Secular AZ is looking for non-religious officiants who can officiate weddings and/or end-of-life celebrations in Arizona. We are putting together a list of ordained secular officiants so that members and website visitors can find an officiant to meet their atheist/agnostic/humanist needs.

If you’d like to be listed, please email us at info@secularaz.org with a brief bio, your officiating experiences, the types of events you officiate, the geographical location where you can officiate, and we will add you to our page.
