The Council of Australian Humanist Societies is joining a network of non-religious groups to raise funds to provide advocacy and support to humanists and atheists who are facing persecution and targeted violence around the world.
Today, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has introduced legislation to hold a marriage equality plebiscite in Parliament.
This plebiscite has been rejected by the people most affected by the issue; LGBTIQ+ Australians who will have to endure the campaign. A campaign that will no doubt be characterised by hateful rhetoric from bigoted religious extremists and fundamentalists.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies does not support this plebiscite.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies inc is excited to launch our brand new website!
In the past various past CAHS committee's of CAHS have had trouble in maintaining our web presence due to a variety of reasons (skills being the main one). It is hoped that this redesigned site with a brand new backend will make it much easier for our committeed volunteers to maintain and upload new and interesting articles regularly.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies is pleased to announce that the next Australian Humanist Conference will be held in Brisbane from May 27 to 29, 2016!
Over the course of two and a half days, Humanists from around Australia will meet to discuss issues facing Australia today, listen to some amazing people on topics of interest and help shape the direction of Humanism in Australia into the future.
