Secularism in Arizona

We live in interesting times. The U.S. is splitting into two groups, those with a traditional religious viewpoint and those with a secular-progressive one. Though Sunday Assembly recognizes value in our past traditions and heritage, we are a forward thinking organization, committed to a secular model for our society. Locally, in Arizona, we are witnessing a fracturing of sorts, in which the old models are competing with the news ones. Recently, our Phoenix City Council voted to enact a “prayer at committee meetings, allowing only fire/police chaplains to give the invocation. This has been met with resistance and illustrates the current state of affairs within our local governing bodies.

Join us on May 29th as we hear from Tory Anderson regarding local issues and initiatives related to secularism in Arizona. We will explore what it means to be a “secularist” in a society still largely dominated by religious leanings.

We would also like to announce the Sunday Assembly Phoenix is an official legal entity in the state of Arizona! This means we can apply for non-profit 501(c)3 status. We will be explaining what this means for us as a community and launch a fundraising effort to cover the expenses.
