Our Mission & Vision

Americans United for Separation of Church and State is a nonpartisan educational and advocacy organization dedicated to advancing the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure freedom of religion, including the right to believe or not believe, for all Americans. 

We envision an America where everyone can freely choose a faith and support it voluntarily, or follow no religious or spiritual path at all, and where the government does not promote religion over non-religtion or favor one faith over another. 

AU is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational orgranization based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1947, we work in the courts, in Congress and state legislatures, at the White House and in the arena of public opinion. We are led by Executive Director Barry W. Lynn and governed by AU's Board of Trustees. 

We address an array of pressing issues. We encourage you to learn about our projects, lawsuits, and out-of-court successes. For a detailed account of AU activities in the past year, check our Annual Reports & Audited Financial Documents.

If you share our commitment to church-state separation, please join with us today. We welcome your support in this important cause.

Mission/Purpose: 

The Japanese American Citizens League is the nation’s largest and oldest Asian Pacific American civil rights organization with over 100 chapters nationwide, of which NMJACL is a chapter, and strives to promote a world that honors diversity by respecting the values of fairness, equality, and social justice. The mission is also to secure and maintain the civil rights of Japanese Americans and all others who are victimized by injustice and bigotry. The organization also works to promote cultural, educational, and social values, and to preserve the heritage and legacy of the Japanese American community.

 Regular Meeting Time: 

 No set date/time, but rather, on an as-needed basis, usually 5-7 times a year for the general membership. Executive Board of Directors meet monthly.

 Membership level:

 ($60/$120)  [PAJOLA - $120].  NMJACL membership ranges from $15/yr. for individual, $25/yr. for family, to 1-time only Life Time membership of $125/yr. for individual, or $175/yr. for a family. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHEN/WHERE: August 10, 6:30–8:30pm at Albuquerque Mennonite Church, 1300 Girard Blvd NE (south of Indian School Rd.)

PURPOSE: To explain the intent of the bill under consideration by Congress, how it might violate free speech of supporters of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel’s occupation of Palestine, and how to respond to it.

The Israel Anti-Boycott Act, legislation introduced in the Senate by Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.) and in the House by Peter J. Roskam (R-Ill.), would make it a crime to support or even furnish information about a boycott directed at Israel or its businesses called by the United Nations, the European Union or any other “international governmental organization.” Violations would be punishable by civil and criminal penalties of up to $1 million and 20 years in prison. The Act is intended to stifle efforts to protest Israel’s settlement policies by boycotting businesses in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. The bill’s target is the BDS movement.

Background: The BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement was launched by 170 Palestinian organizations and civil society, inspired by the anti-apartheid movement against South Africa. Its purpose is to urge non-violent pressure on Israel to comply with international law by 1) ending the occupation of Arab lands and dismantle the separation wall, and 2) recognizing the full rights of Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel, and 3) respecting the rights of refugees to return to their homes and properties stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

The ACLU has sent a letter to the US Congress opposing the bill. It stated it a Washington Post op-ed on 7-25-17: Whether one approves or disapproves of the BDS movement itself, people should have a right to make up their own minds about it. Americans engage in boycotts every day when they decide not to buy from companies whose practices they oppose. Students have boycotted companies that sold clothing manufactured in sweatshops abroad. Environmentalists have boycotted Nestlé for its deforestation practices. By using their power in the marketplace, consumers can act collectively to express their political points of view. There is nothing illegal about such collective action; indeed, it is constitutionally protected.

SPEAKERS: American Civil Liberties Union representative; Nancy Hollander and John Boyd, human rights lawyers; Alan Wagman, Jewish Voice for Peace; staff member from Sen. Tom Udall’s office, and possible speakers from the Friends Meeting and other faith and activist groups.

SPONSORS: Jewish Voice for Peace Albuquerque, Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice (Other sponsors forthcoming)

The Annual Commemoration of the 1979 Church Rock Uranium Spill takes place Saturday, July 15, 7am-3pm. meet at Red Water Pond Rd. Community, 12 mi. north of Red Rocks State Park near Church Rock on the Navajo Nation. Starts with sunrise prayers, then a 3mi. walk to the spill site, gathering under shade for speeches, educational booths, free food and drinks and a fundraising auction. A special tent with activities will be set up for children. Contact: Annie, 905-1288 or Jackie, 905-0022. For more info, visit Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment (mase) on facebook.
