Asma Jahangir was a tireless and courageous activist for human rights. We were proud to have her as an honorary associate, and it was with great sadness that we learnt of her death last weekend. You can read our tribute to her below.
Last year Asma was shortlisted for the Secularist of the Year award, and yesterday we announced the nominees for this year's prize. Between them our six candidates are making a vital contribution to the promotion of equality, freedom and the rule of law. The awards ceremony and lunch takes place on 24 March and tickets are still available. We hope you'll join us.
And on Wednesday (21 February) we'll be holding a static protest outside Parliament against plans to increase religious discrimination in school admissions. The details are below – we hope we'll see you there.
