From faith schools to coercive worship, and from confessional RE to faith based sex education, our school system is full of inappropriate religious influence, privilege and discrimination. But it doesn't need to be this way, our many fantastic community schools show how we can move towards a secular, inclusive education system.

The National Secular Society's Alastair Lichten, will talk about the Society's No More Faith Schools campaign, along with their other education focused campaigns. The talk includes advice on activism and is engaging and informative for those with all levels of pre-existing knowledge on the subject.

Alastair Lichten is the Society's head of education. He joined the NSS in 2014 to work on a variety of their campaigns, before focusing on education and currently coordinates the No More Faith Schools campaign.

This event was originally scheduled in July, and is the first of our No More Faith Schools talks to go online. Places are limited, so please click here to register. The talk commences at 7.30pm, and the audience can join from 7.15pm onwards.
