Americans United for Separation
of Church and State
South Sound Chapter, Olympia Washington

Americans United for Separation of Church and State is dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans.

The Olympia-based South Sound Chapter of Americans United is a part of the national organization of Americans United for Separation of Church and State and offers a way to get involved in church-state issues on the local and state levels.

Our meetings are held monthly starting at 6:30 PM on the third Tuesday of each month (except December) at the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation, 2300 East End Street, Olympia, Washington. (See Map)
