About the Campaign

This campaign is supported by a coalition of freethought organisations: the Rationalist Society of Australia, the Atheist Foundation of Australia, the NSW Rationalist Association, Humanists Victoria, Sydney Atheists, Humanists Australia, the National Secular Lobby, the Australian Skeptics, the Australian Skeptics (Vic. branch), the Queensland Parents for Secular State Schools, and Go Gentle Australia.
