Americans United for Separation for the Separation of Church and State is a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization that advocates for the separation of church and state. AU's advocacy efforts are based on the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. AU supports grassroots organization and education, advises on and fights for legal issues, and promotes legislative efforts. The type of issues that AU takes on is varied - discrimination, marriage, reproductive rights, government subsidies for religion, religion in public schools, school vouchers and the judiciary are just a few. 

This Sunday the president of the Minnesota Chapter of Americans United, David Pacheco, will join us to discuss the principles that AU support and the work that the national and Minnesota chapters are currently doing.
