We are pleased to announce the publication of the fifth edition of the State of the Secular States report! This groundbreaking report on state laws and policies that affect religious equality and the separation of religion and government has been expanded and updated based on the 2022 legislative session. The report examines more than 50 measures of law, both positive and negative, in every state as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

This report is intended to be a powerful tool for advocates and lawmakers, explaining the laws and policies that affect the separation of religion and government in their states and allowing them to set meaningful and achievable advocacy goals. It is more important than ever for atheists to become engaged in state advocacy to protect civil rights and the separation of religion and government. Register now to learn about the 2022 State of the Secular States report and other advocacy resources American Atheists provides to support state advocacy and what we can expect in the 2023 state legislative session!
