We need your support to help us protect young people's freedom of choice from religion.
Currently children and young people in Scotland have no right to opt out of Religious services in school.
The Scottish Government have so far refused to listen to a wide colation of voices calling for children young people to have their own choice when it come to religious prayers, visits to churches and preaching by religious clergy in Scotland's schools.
Even the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child have condemned the lack of choice that Scotland's school students have.
Freedom to choose your own Religion or Belief and be allowed to manifest that is a fundamental right. It is shameful that in the twenty-first century, Scotland fails to protect that right for Scotland's children adn young people in School.
