Protect legal abortions
The US decision to overturn Roe v Wade has shown how fragile our basic human rights can be.
We want to take this opportunity to protect legal abortions in the UK for all time by taking abortion out of the criminal code, where it sits now, and establish that the right of a woman to control her body is a basic human right that should be recognised explicitly in law.
This is already the case in the law of Northern Ireland since 2020, and we want to make sure that it’s the case across the UK as a whole. Will you sign our petition today?
Protect the rights of the non-religious
The UK Government is planning to reform the Human Rights Act and to replace it with a British Bill of Rights. If this happens, this will have a devastating impact on the rights and freedoms of non-religious people, such as humanists.
Please take a minute to urge your MP to oppose these reforms, so that the non-religious can continue to have the same freedoms and protections from discrimination as their religious counterparts.
End discriminatory admissions in state schools
We hear from many people like our Vice President Alice Roberts every day. From people who had naturally assumed that religious discrimination would be illegal in schools – as it is everywhere else – only to find that it is not only completely legal, but commonplace, and aggressively protected by religious interest groups.
We’ve supported parents to challenge religious discrimination in school selection – but now we need to go further and address the system as a whole.
Help us fight for inclusive school admissions – sign our petition today.
Replace parliamentary prayers
Did you know each session of Parliament starts with prayers? And did you know that, due to limited seats, this means that non-Christian MPs and peers find it more difficult to speak in Parliament’s busiest and most important debates?
We’re calling for Parliament to review this and introduce an inclusive model of time for reflection, which works well in the Scottish Parliament.
Please will you sign our petition for a modern Parliament?
End faith schools
Donate today to fund and resource Britain’s only dedicated campaigner against faith schools.
Help us defend the rights of children and teachers by campaigning to end state religious schools, religious discrimination in admissions, and compulsory collective worship, and for the introduction of comprehensive relationships and sex education in all schools.
Support our campaign to end faith schools by donating today.
Support humanist marriages
Humanist marriages are legally recognised in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but humanist couples in England and Wales face discrimination and are forced to have a separate civil marriage.
We want the UK Government to end the inequality faced by humanists by bringing the law in line with Scotland and Northern Ireland, giving legal recognition to humanist marriages in England and Wales.
Write to your MP to end humanist marriage inequality.
End compulsory worship
Did you know the UK is the only country in the world to impose Christian worship in state schools?
Current law in England and Wales requires all state-funded schools to conduct daily acts of ‘worship’ of a ‘Christian character’.
We’re calling on the Government to replace compulsory worship with inclusive assemblies for all.
Sign our petition and back inclusive assemblies for all.
Defend our Human Rights Act
We are concerned by any attempts to water down the legal protections contained in our Human Rights Act.
We want to ensure that the rights and freedoms of citizens in a democracy, such as the freedom to judicially review unlawful government decisions, are not restricted.
Sign our petition to the Justice Secretary.
Repeal NI blasphemy laws
Northern Ireland will soon be the last part of the UK or Ireland to have a blasphemy law in statute.
These laws are used around the world to suppress free expression and persecute political and religious minorities. We want to see them urgently repealed.
Urge your MLA today for a repeal of Northern Ireland’s blasphemy laws.
