Congressional Freethought Caucus expands

Freethought Caucus members

Rep. Julia Brownley of California is the newest member of the Congressional Freethought Caucus, bringing to total number of members up to 17. 

The caucus, founded in 2018 and co-chaired by Reps. Jared Huffman and Jamie Raskin, has four objectives: Promote public policy formed on the basis of reason, science, and moral values; protect the secular character of our government by adhering to the strict constitutional principle of the separation of church and state; oppose discrimination against atheists, agnostics, humanists, seekers, religious and nonreligious persons, and to champion the value of freedom of thought and conscience worldwide; and provide a forum for members of Congress to discuss their moral frameworks, ethical values, and personal religious journeys.
