PFC stands with PA's Secretary of Health, Dr. Rachel Levine, regarding her response to the pandemic and her reaction to recent transphobic personal attacks from some in the general public, media, and government. https://youtu.be/3D9FxzbvNYU
In addition to respecting Dr. Levine's individuality and right to privacy, we fully support the science behind an effective vaccine, wearing a mask properly, socially distancing, and hand-washing to further reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Science is what will get us through these trying times, but compassion is what brings us together as one human family. We hope to see you at one of our virtual events in the very near future!

Public Policy Participation and Political Action
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!
