This general election, I’m voting for a candidate who supports humanist principles: secularism, bodily autonomy, reproductive rights, LGBT+ rights, and meaningful action on climate change. #ImVotingHumanist

This general election, I’ll be supporting the candidate who wants the UK to take a leading role in promoting religious freedom around the world, and who supports scrapping blasphemy and apostasy laws. #ImVotingHumanist

This general election, I’ll be voting for the candidate who promises to remove bishops from the house of lords, because I believe in democracy and I want to see an end to religious privilege. #ImVotingHumanist

The climate crisis is an international emergency. This general election, I’m voting for the candidate who backs the scientific consensus and supports urgent and equitable action to tackle climate change. #ImVotingHumanist

This general election, I’ll be voting for the candidate who wants to see asylum seekers treated like human beings. That includes faith-leavers fleeing religious persecution, often treated less favourably than others on arrival in the UK. #ImVotingHumanist
