Every party should be a secular party.
In 2016, history was made with the first-ever Secular Caucus at the Texas Democratic Convention. In 2018, the Caucus met again with an overflow crowd. The speakers included those involved in secular awareness organizations as well as Texas Democratic candidates wishing to engage with our caucus and its mission.
The Texas Democratic Secular Caucus pledges to work with the Texas Democratic Party in several ways. We will urge legislators, candidates, and the party to minimize emphasis on religious affiliation and to ensure that non-religious Democrats feel welcome in the party. We will endorse candidates whose platform and track record support a secular position. We will support those candidates who will help Texas and America build a stronger secular culture while protecting the religious rights of all citizens. We will strive to communicate our vision and mission throughout Texas communities to gain support and improve dialog on this sometimes sensitive issue.
