Americans United for Separation of Church and State is a religious liberty watchdog group based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1947, the organization educates Americans about the importance of church-state separation in safeguarding religious freedom.
Americans United is the only national organization that devotes one-hundred percent of its time and resources to church/state separation. Through public education and advocacy, Americans United works to preserve religious liberty and freedom of conscience as guaranteed by our Constitution. The Delaware Valley Americans United Chapter, DVAU, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization whose primary mission is to provide a grassroots presence for the education and advocacy work of the national organization, and to act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of Americans United in the defense of religious liberty in the local community.
Delaware Valley AU (DVAU) serves the greater Delaware Valley, with Regional Committees in Bucks County, Philadelphia, and South Jersey. DVAU hosts educational talks from church-state experts, videos and chats, panel discussions, and other events in and around the Delaware Valley. We are also on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/delvalau), Twitter (@delvalau, or https://twitter.com/delvalau), and YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/DVAUvideo).
DVAU provides speakers to churches, civic organizations, and other community groups to discuss church-state separation issues. We do tabling at events throughout the Philadelphia area. DVAU’s Board Members are available to speak to the media. We report potential church-state violations to AU’s national office for review. We watch courts and legislators in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware to make sure our religious freedoms are protected. We are nonpartisan, nonprofit, and nondiscriminatory. Americans United seeks to unite people from all faiths or religious outlooks to work together to support Jefferson’s Wall of Separation.
Please join or renew your membership in Americans United and support the DVAU chapter. Your contributions make our activism possible.
