What is the Texas Secular Convention all about? The secular community in Texas is large and growing quickly. One in five Texans now consider themselves non-religious. Despite being underrepresented in our state government, we Imagine a secular Texas. The Texas electorate is changing and the legislature will follow. Because in a state with increasing religious diversity, a secular government works to the benefit of everyone and preserves freedom for all. Secular Texas and Secular Coalition for Texas are providing a venue for secular Texans by hosting the inaugural Texas Secular Convention & Rally from Feb. 28 to March 1, 2015 in Austin. The convention and rally will raise the public profile of secular voters, educate secular voters, as well as bring secular people together to have some fun. The convention will begin Friday afternoon with a rally and lobbying endeavor at the State Capitol to raise awareness of the concerns of the Texas secular community. Then Friday evening through Sunday morning at the Sheraton Hotel at the Capitol, there will be speakers and panels on sex education reform, minority involvement in secularism, secular activism, building relationships between progressive religious and secular communities, the necessity of secular government, as well as nonpolitical secular topics. There will also be entertainment including a live broadcast of Dogma Debate and an after-party. Our goal is to create a broader, more visible secular community in Texas and we hope you will join us!
