The Campaigns of Humanists UK
Tyneside Irish Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4SG

North East Humanists is a partner group of Humanists UK (HUK). Whereas we provide services to the local non-religious community, HUK do the national campaigning. Humanists UK is expanding rapidly and now has over 75,000 members and supporters so its national voice is becoming more effective. Following soon after the HUK annual conference, this talk by Richy Thompson will give everyone interested in humanist campaigns a chance to hear of the latest successes and plans for the future.

Richy Thompson is the Director of Public Affairs and Policy at HUK. Richy works on issues from across Humanists UK’s public policy remit. From 2015 to early 2017 Richy was the Campaigns Manager. From 2011 to 2015 he was the Faith Schools and Education Campaigns Officer, and before that he was the President of Humanist Students.

Doors open at 6:30, the talk starts at 7pm. The talk and formal Q&A will be finished by 9 but many people stay to chat afterwards.

We charge £1 for NEH members and £2 for non-members, which covers the cost of light refreshments.
