Making Secularism Normal in the 21st Century
We devote much of our time to campaigning and lobbying on behalf of the non-religious as well as for freedom of religion, belief, speech, thought, and expression more generally. We work for an open society and a secular state with no religious privilege or discrimination based on religion or belief. We also campaign for a rational approach to public ethical issues in order to contribute to a public life where decisions are made on evidence rather than on the basis of irrational beliefs or religious doctrines. You can help!
Our campaigns let you know how we are working to change Calgary, Alberta, and Canada for the better. The Secular Humanists of Calgary desires to be Calgary and Alberta's voice for the non-religious and the secular. We promote progressive values, secularism, reason, education, and equality for secularists, humanists, atheists, and freethinkers. We work to end religious privilege and discrimination based on religion and belief. We stand up for a rational approach to public ethical issues and call for evidence to form the basis of public debate rather than irrational beliefs or religious dogmas. It is our desire to partner with other secular humanists, from all walks of life that share in these values and principles, that uphold equality for all, and the separation of religion and government.
