Public Policy Participation and Political Action

A message from PFC's PPP Committee: Pennsylvania voters!  You will be key in the upcoming elections. We are faced with the threat of an economic crisis, global pandemic, climate change, the erosion of civil liberties, and religious dogma unduly influencing our secular government.

The health and well-being of our families and neighbors should be the top priority at this crucial time in American history. Our actions, or our inaction, will affect many future generations to come. 

Due to Covid-19 there will be a *very* limited number of polling locations open and the deadline to request a mail-in ballot is fast approaching. You must be a registered voter to submit an application. 

In order to vote by mail in the 2020 General Primary held on June 2nd applications must be received no later than May 26th and returned to the County Office before 8 PM on June 2nd.

We must elect local, state and federal government officials who make policy decisions based on science and reason rather than for personal, political, or financial gain."

Deadline to register to vote in PA 5/18/20: https://www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/Pages/VoterRegistrationApplication.aspx 

Deadline to apply for a PA mail-in ballot application 5/26/20:  https://www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/OnlineAbsenteeApplication/#/OnlineAbsenteeBegin

If you're from the Pittsburgh area and passionate about secularism the Public Policy Participation Committee is the place for you! We're currently working on local and state-level issues, along side our national affiliates, and seek to be a respected voice for the secular community. We are a welcoming and accepting committee that mainly focuses on forming public policy to support equal representation and the separation of government from religion. Please see PFC's calendar for our upcoming meetings, visit our page for ways to take action now, and email Marie to join PFC's Public Policy Participation Committee today!

See our Public Policy Participation page for other ways to take action NOW!
