Our work: Public Policy Participation and Political Action

PFC identifies areas and issues within local government and local institutions where PFC can and should contribute a perspective and viewpoint on behalf of our stakeholders. We seek to have a seat at the table to represent and communicate the evidence-based, humanist and non-theist beliefs of our members regarding local issues and actions. Beyond the local arena, we seek to keep our members informed about national and international policy and legislation likely to be important to them. At all levels of government, PFC seeks to facilitate participation by its members, by electronic, voice or personal communication with legislators and other leaders. PFC facilitates this participation within the the legal limitations of our non-profit 501(c)(3) status.

Some of the policies we promote include:

  • Promotion of separation of Church and State across the board;
  • Promotion of evidence based public policy in general and of specific evidence-based policies when the public conversation is being heavily influenced by non-evidence based beliefs ie religious dogma.
