This is a one-stop shop for everything secular in the Greater Houston area.
What does it mean to be secular?
The dictionary defines it as “of or relating to worldly things or to things that are not regarded as religious, spiritual, or sacred; not pertaining to or connected with religion”. That’s a good place to start.

The purpose of Secular Houston is to work with local politicians of all parties, contributing a robust voice and representation of secular values; increasing the visibility and respect for non-theistic viewpoints; and protecting the religiously neutral character of government, as envisioned by the founders of this nation, by encouraging local politicians to adopt secular policies.
The purpose of Secular Houston shall be to help elect local candidates that align with secular values by providing a centralized repository of expertise and a clearinghouse for all secular campaign activities.

We are a group of like-minded individuals from a variety of backgrounds, creeds, faiths, and even political standing; the goal that moves us to action is the common ground of secular humanism and a strong desire to promote a government grounded in secularism. Our goal is not anti-theistic, rather pro-secular.
