Freedom of expression and the freedom to dissent are of vital importance to Humanists. This is why the BCHA has signed onto the new Voices-Voix Declaration.
The 2016 Declaration succeeds the previous declaration that decried the muzzling of government scientists, political audits of charities and general advocacy chill. With the election of a new government in October, the new Declaration calls for an overhaul of laws and regulations to foster a strong and independent civil society.
These changes are vital to ensuring that groups like ours are able to continue to challenge religious privilege and push for greater equality for all.
Fort McMurray Appeal
In the last week BCHA supporters donated just over $2000 to the Red Cross' Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal. If you haven't already, please consider making a donation. All donations to $5000 will be matched by one of our donors, and all of those donations will be matched by the Government of Canada.
If you've already made a donation to the Red Cross, forward a receipt to me to have it counted in our total.
