Hi <<Name>>,

The Secular Policy Institute is working hard for you!

This week see our letter to all staff at the US Congress, emphasizing environmental reform and more through the SPI World Future Guide 2016.

Find SPI affiliates running for a US state senate and speaking publicly about group evolution, sex education, and psychology.

Meet the greatest philosopher of the 20th century and the coalition member behind African-American secularism. Get the "deets" on Millenials in our secular demographic analysis.

And why is it illegal for Egyptians to denounce Judaism but not Hinduism? Faith-based reasoning, you've done it again.
