What We Do


Humanism Ireland campaigns

Stand Up for Freedom

The Humanist Association of Ireland passionately believes that a modern Ireland must be a secular or religiously neutral, state.

That’s why we support so many campaigns and act as advocates wherever we are needed, including:

Our advocacy for causes like this is built upon three core beliefs when it comes to our relationship with the state:

State institutions should not biased towards any particular belief group

  • Differences of belief or philosophy should be fully and equitably respected in policy and accommodated in practice by public authorities
  • The constitution, laws and practices of the state reflect a secular approach and are non-biased
  • As we enter the third decade of this century we embrace the fact that Ireland is becoming a much more ethnically, culturally and philosophically diverse society. That’s why the state, which serves us all, must respect diversity without any religious bias in our constitution, laws and practices.
