Why Australia needs a Bill of Rights. ... read more
The Humanist Society of South Australia advocates for a just and compassionate society, that treats all people as deserving of the same respect, dignity and opportunity to live up to their full potential as constructive members of society. All policy should have regard to the International Declaration of Human Rights while also having consideration for future sustainability, cultural, social and ecological considerations.
The Humanist Society of South Australia Inc. was established in the early 1960s to advocate for Humanist views and concerns at a federal level. Notable campaigns that Humanists have been involved in over the years are the decriminalisation of male homosexual acts, the Vietnam moratorium, safe and legal access to abortions, no-fault divorce and civil celebrants. Humanists are still campaigning for progressive causes including marriage equality, voluntary assisted dying and drug law reform among many others.
