Campaigning locally for a Secular Britain.
Who we are and what we believe:
We are a group of people based in and around the Nottingham area who support the idea of a secular society, in which people of all religions, and none, should be treated equally.
We support the Charter of the National Secular Society and meet regularly to discuss secular issues; listen to guest speakers; organise campaigns, have debates and the occasional social evening.
We are not anti-religion. We oppose discrimination against religions and discrimination by religions equally but we believe that religion is a private matter for individuals and that the privileged position of religious organisations and the self-interest of religious leaders is one that should be challenged.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU
Please have a look at the website and, if you like what you see, why not come along and join us at one of our meetings? For more information or any general inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
