On this episode of the Secular Student Life podcast, Ryan Bell speaks with Monica Miller, about the Peace Cross in Bladensburg, Maryland—a war memorial that stands 40 feet tall in the middle of a busy intersection. Monica is Senior Counsel at the American Humanist Association. Since joining the AHA in 2012, she has vigorously defended the constitutional mandate of separation of church and state by litigating Establishment Clause cases across the country. She has served as lead counsel in over 25 federal cases, including before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Circuits. Just over a month ago Monica presented oral arguments on behalf of the American Humanist Association before the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of regarding the constitutionality of the Bladensburg Cross war memorial in Bladensburg, Maryland.

In part two, Ryan speaks with Sarah Henry, a spokesperson for the American Humanist Association, about her appearance on The Ingraham Angle, with Laura Ingraham. We break down her interview and talk about how she stayed on message and challenged the false narrative that Ingraham was spinning.

Sarah is the Communications Associate at the American Humanist Association. Sarah graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and Photography from Lynn University, in sunny South Florida. She is currently a graduate student at American University, pursuing a Masters of Public Administration.

Both Monica and Sarah were SSA student leaders in their respective schools and have gone on to important roles in the secular movement.
