Yes, it has been quite a while, but we finally got it ready! Check out the Newsletters section to see the current issue.

We have upgraded and updated the site, making it a bit more Web 2.0 friendly. The new system will allow us to get information out faster and more efficiently. Some enhancements include:

  • A better visual experience
  • Automatic news and article archiving
  • Direct newsletter subscription capabilities
  • Article searching with keywords
  • Dynamically updated national Church-State Separation news
  • Automatic reformatting for mobile devices

We are finishing up the process of finalizing the Newsletters page and migrating the old content over, otherwise the site is ready to go!

So please visit often to see what’s going on in the fight to preserve the Separation of Church and State both locally and nationally.

…And while we are on the subject, be sure to visit the Events page.

Americans United is hosting a Grassroots and Religious Outreach training session April 17th in Long Island.

Barry Lynn, AU’s Executive Director will also be speaking later in the evening.

Thank you for all that attended our Chapter Meeting on Feb. 5th.  We had a very good turnout!

We would also like to thank Maggie Garrett, AU Assistant Legislative Director, for giving a very informative and rousing presentation!

We look forward to having more updates to our Chapter 2009 Priorities in the coming days and weeks.  We also encourage you to submit items you find concerning President Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Partnerships and judicial appointments to our email.


In the meantime, there are two ways you can get involved now:

  • Thank Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand for helping to defeat Senator DeMint’s amendment to strip constitutional protections from the Economic Recovery Package.
  • Send a letter to President Obama urging him to overturn the Bush Administration executive order thats undercut civil rights and civil liberties.
