The British Humanist Association
Who are we?
The British Humanist Association (BHA) is the national charity working on behalf of non-religious people who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity.
Founded in 1896, the BHA is trusted by over 28,000 members and supporters and over 90 local and special interest affiliates to promote Humanism. Our policies are informed with the support of over 120 of the UK’s most prominent philosophers, scientists, and other thinkers and experts and we seek to advance them with the help of over 100 parliamentarians in membership of the All Party Parliamentary Humanist Group.
What do we want?
We want a world where everyone lives cooperatively on the basis of shared human values and respect for human rights.
We want non-religious people to be confident in living ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity.
What do we do?
We campaign for a secular state, challenge religious privilege, and promote equal treatment in law and policy of everyone regardless of religion or belief.
We offer a humanist perspective in public debate, drawing on contemporary humanist thought and the worldwide humanist tradition.
