2016 Endorsed Congressional Allies


These candidates endorsed by the FEF PAC have demonstrated their solidarity with the secular community by supporting legislative measures that strengthen the separation of church and state, protect nontheists from discrimination and uphold scientific integrity in education and research. Election update: With the exception of Mike Honda (CA-17), all of our Congressional allies won their elections. Rep. Honda is a strong ally of the secular community and his leadership on our issues will be missed.
