If this is your first visit to our site, Welcome; if not, Welcome Back. The North Shore Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State is one of more than 100 local chapters of the national organization of Americans United and the second chapter established in Illinois.

We urge visitors to visit the Americans United site for more information on the goals and objectives of Americans United. As you can see, this site is a work in progress and we hope that within a few weeks we'll have more resources and information on local programs, how you can get involved and what actions we can take to preserve the separation of church and state.

A good way the find out what the North Shore Chapter is all about is to attend one of our meetings and participate in our programs. Information on our next meeting is in the colujmn to your right on this page.

Again, Welcome and Thanks for visiting.

On December 20th, 2005, the famous Dover vs. Kitzmiller trial came to a conclusion. The decisive federal ruling was a high-profile defeat for proponents of "intelligent design" creationism and their attempts to have their religious beliefs taught as science in public schools. In addition, the Dover ruling was a turning point in the broader
modern evolution/creationism battle.

Now, five years later, come join the North Shore chapter of AU as we celebrate this historic victory and as we look to the future challenges of teaching evolutionary science. The creationist movement may have suffered a defeat at Dover, but their tactics have evolved and they continue to pursue their agenda (even on our local school board level, as evidenced above). Come for some celebration but also to be informed of the latest developments.

This meeting is free & open to the public, and refreshments will be served (a birthday cake for Dover vs. Kitzmiller)!
