August 8, 2016 Newsletter

It's just passed one year since Ian Bushfield started working again as the BCHA's part-time executive director.

In this time we've seen some incredible growth and brought forward some important campaigns. Most notably, we ended Gideon Bible distribution in Abbotsfordbrought a secular and progressive voice against the proposed evangelical law school, were cited by the Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying, helped launch a petition to repeal Canada's blasphemy law and exposed religious coercion in addictions recovery to the legislature's health committee.

On the community side, we've also supported campus groups, took part at Vaisakhi DayCar Free Day and Pridedonated blood, raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and victims of the Fort McMurray firesheld a coat drive and are in the final stages of applying to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. And we certified our first Humanist Officiants.

All of this has been possible because of your continued support.

But this has only been the first year and we have plenty more in store. If you haven't already, consider setting up a regular donation to support our work.
