Newsline 25 September 2015

This Saturday marks the 182nd birthday of NSS founder Charles Bradlaugh. Though a lot has changed since he founded the Society in 1866, secularism is as vital as ever for a fair and equal country. Next year the NSS will mark its 150th anniversary, and to celebrate its work over the years – and to consider all the challenges that lie ahead – we will be hosting a one-day conference in London focusing on how secularism can help us live better together. Keep an eye on Newsline for more details in the coming months.

In the meantime, to help us continue Bradlaugh's vital work campaigning for a secular state, join the National Secular Society today.
