Help the BHA in its effort to phase out state funded 'faith' schools by ensuring we can employ our dedicated campaign officer against faith schools for another year.
When we raise £30,000 we will be able to continue employing our dedicated campaigner for twelve months. Our campaigner will make sure that the voice of UK citizens who oppose faith schools is represented in the most powerful way. To do this our campaigner helps to stimulate and organise local campaigns against new faith schools and lobby government and parliament to reform the laws that allow state funded schools to discriminate in their employment and admissions on religious grounds, and to teach unbalanced curricula of religious education.
The British Humanist Association campaigns for inclusive schools with no religious admissions policies, balanced teaching about different beliefs and values, and no 'collective worship'; the BHA is in favour of the phasing out of state funded 'faith' schools and campaigns nationally and locally for this cause.
Please give generously to this work, as it is always difficult to fund but its importance is enormous.
