Converting Our Secular Values Into Effective Action

As secular progressives, we need to do three things to live up to our values and put them into practice:

By "wake up" we mean that we need to realize that we can change the course of human history for the better. We must overcome what often tends to be our complacency and our sometimes fatalistic conviction that there is nothing we can do that will really matter. People - especially in democracies - do matter.

"Read up" refers to the need to properly study and understand the issues at hand. Too many of us believe we have all of the answers we need, even when we have not expended the proper effort to study the details of the issues we care about.

"Stand up" means becoming an active political participant. For some, that may mean writing to elected representatives, government officials and/or local newspapers. For others, it may mean marching or demonstrating in public. For all, it means making sure to vote and encouraging others to vote for candidates that support solutions to the problems at hand.
