Humanists UK and Humanist Students announce free membership for students

From Humanists UK:

Last week, Humanists UK took the step of making student membership of Humanists UK absolutely free for all students in further education for the duration of their degrees.
We have done this to integrate the memberships of dozens of university humanist societies across the UK, so that they can be more joined-up with each other and the wider humanist movement. Members of student humanist societies can now also directly elect the President of Humanist Students, our student section, through an online vote each year.

This is just one of the ways that we’re bringing non-religious people together to develop their own views and an understanding of the world around them. Working together, our members and supporters across the country help us to champion ideas for the one life we have, promote human rights and equality, and oppose religious discrimination.

This community of supporters has, in the last few days, allowed us to promote new ideas for reforms to the RE curriculum; to criticise faith schools at the UN; to advance the decriminalisation of abortion; to condemn religious persecution overseas; to stand up to extreme animal cruelty in the name of religion; and much more.

If you’re not already a member, then do join today or ask a friend to do the same. For students, it’s free. Together, we can work towards a secular UK where rational thinking and kindness prevail.

Please become an SHG member (or renew your membership)

Untitled 3Memberships are now due, please join or rejoin us!

We have in a few years grown from a small group meeting occasionally to having a full programme of meetings and social events.

We would like to grow further in order to:

  • continue to have an interesting and varied programme covering humanism and aspects of religion, science, psychology and social and political affairs, with a chance to debate them from humanist points of view
  • have an active social programme to enable non-religious people to meet and talk together
  • help to provide a voice for the non-religious, in Shropshire and beyond.

Your membership will enable us to put these into action.

Membership is £10 for the year. If you join part way through the year there is a discount. You may attend 3 meetings free but after that we request that you join.

Please print and post the membership form that you can download here or contact Chris Smith at info@shropshire.humanist.org.uk.
