After four years, Naomi Phillips is standing down as Chair of Labour Humanists. We are very pleased to let you know that Vice Chair Tom Copley AM will be stepping in as Chair in the interim, until we find a new leader. Over that past four years we’ve seen our group grow hugely – we’ve more than tripled our membership, we’ve now got a strong online presence, we’ve had packed out annual ‘No Prayer Breakfasts’ at Labour conference, we’ve met and briefed MPs, we’ve contributed to Labour’s policy review (and achieved having equality for non-religious people firmly on official documents), and much, much more. We’re now going into a new exciting time for Labour where we will be looking to become an affiliated society to the Labour Party and to influence party policy on our key issues, from free speech to faith schools.
We’re also looking for volunteers to join our Executive Committee (or just volunteer!) to help us organise and grow our group. We’re particularly looking for people who can give some time to help with communications and social media, events, and updating our website.
