Becoming a member of the National Secular Society is a declaration of your support for the separation of the state from religious institutions. Make a stand for freedom, fairness and human rights by adding your voice to the call for a secular society.
We receive no funding from government or outside bodies – our campaigning is wholly supported by our members, people like you who share our belief in the urgent need to separate religion from education, politics and public life in general.
