Humanists UK launches membership recruitment drive with Adam Rutherford

29 March, 2022

Humanists UK has today launched a new membership recruitment drive, fronted by a film from incoming president, Dr Adam Rutherford.

Adam is an acclaimed geneticist, science writer, broadcaster, and humanist. He is appealing for new members to allow the continuation and growth of Humanists UK’s important work, including its important campaigns, services like pastoral care in hospitals, and humanist ceremonies.



The recruitment film will be shared on Humanist UK’s social media channels following a highly successful long-running membership campaign featuring current president, Alice Roberts.

Humanists UK Chief Executive Andrew Copson said:

‘Humanists UK relies on generous support from members, not only to fund our much-needed communications and community services but to give us the growing constituency that makes all the difference in our campaigning work.

We are all delighted that Adam will be stepping up to the role of president this summer and that he is already helping to introduce new audiences to humanism. This membership recruitment drive will boost our numbers even further and show that we represent a large and ever-growing segment of the UK population.’
