Join the Alberta Secular Alliance

We are just getting started

The Alberta Secular Alliance is a grassroots initiative that will campaign for the separation of religion and government and will promote secularism as the best means to create a society in which people of all religions or none can live together fairly and cohesively. The ASA sees secularism — the position that the state should be separate from religion — as an essential element in promoting equality between all citizens.

Our mandate is twofold:

  1. Help facilitate and support the birth of new secular communities across the province

  2. Build a Provincial Secular Humanist/Atheist Council that meets virtually.

This Council will strategize on how to petition and work with the Government of Alberta to ensure a fair and secular Province and to end religious privilege in all areas of government. ​​

The area's that we will be focusing on:

  • One Public Education System

  • Updated Educational Curriculum which includes diversity inclusive training/updated sex education.

  • Access to abortion services in medical clinics

  • Fair funding and proper access to MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying/Dying with Dignity

Some ways you can join and help:

  • If you are as passionate about Secularism in Alberta as we are, then contact us! Let us know where you are and that you are interested in getting involved! We commit to keeping all of our member's identities confidential! If you don't have a rep for your area we would welcome you to join the council! 

  • If you are more open about your Atheism you can join your local page and begin building a community. Building local communities is one of the most important things you can do to help strengthen our network in Alberta. 

 

  • Become a member of the Secular Humanists of Calgary. We are working hard to become the kind of organization that will advance secularism on a social and political level and we need your help to do it!

I'm not out as an Atheist or Humanist can I still join as a member of a local group?

Yes of course! The local groups/communities exist to bring people together! Everyone deserves a soft place to land when they leave religion and this is why we have created these local groups. You are not expected to be a leader or join the council. Leaving religion can be an isolating experience so these communities serve a very important purpose. 

I want to do more than talk about secularism I want to help support its success, so how do I help?

Donate both money and energy/time, because it will take both. We really do need monthly and yearly partners who donate consistently to help fund this initiative. We even value our one-time donors, all the support we receive helps make this all possible. Atheists and secularists are really good at engaging in deep conversations about how we need to see a change in this province, but we haven't been the best at putting in the effort it will take to make the changes we want to see. So here's our opportunity. Will you help make this possible.
