Democratic Party embraces nonreligious voters - Secular Coalition for America

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) embraced American nonbelievers for the first time on Saturday, August 24, 2019. The DNC adopted a resolution that recognizes the contributions of nonbelievers to society and to the Democratic Party.


This resolution marks the first time a major U.S. political party has specifically courted religiously unaffiliated people across the nation.

The resolution says that the DNC Recognizes:


1. The value, ethical soundness, and importance of the religiously unaffiliated demographic, a group of Americans who contribute in innumerable ways to the arts, sciences, medicine, business, law, the military, their communities, the success of the Party and prosperity of the Nation; and


2. That religiously unaffiliated Americans are a group that, as much as any other, advocates for rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values and should be represented, included, and heard by the Party.
