We challenge the unfair special advantages given to religion whether they occur in localised disputes or at an international level. This week we've lobbied an academy trust and an MP over a plan to merge a non-religious school in Norfolk into a Christian one. And on the International Day of the Girl, we wrote to UNESCO to raise concerns over the fact it grants World Heritage Status to religious sites which ban women from entering.
In an uncertain political period around the world, this is a vital time in the campaign for secularism. But it may also be a propitious one for making the case, particularly in Britain. Another poll has shown how detached the country's institutions are from the attitudes of its people on religious issues. The many quiet supporters of secularism in Britain need a voice. We thank you for your support as we provide it.
