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 members of society. All policy should have regard to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights while also having consideration for future sustainability, cultural, social and ecological considerations.

Human Rights
All humans have the right to be treated equally and with dignity. The United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights are documents that should be closely adhered to by all Governments when creating legislation and policy.
Mental Health Services
All people who require mental health services should have free and available access to services and support, whilst being free from stigma. Presently, the system is underfunded and unable to cope with demand.
Climate Change
There is a scientific consensus that the climate is changing. We need to make decisions on future sustainability based upon reason, evidence and scientific consensus.
Environment
Caring for the environment is vitally important for all life on Earth. Legislation and policies on land management, mining, pollution and agriculture should provide environmental protection as a basic starting point.
Marriage Equality
All consenting adults should have the same access to the exact same rights and obligations allowed to heterosexual couples.
Homelessness
As an affluent nation, Australia should be able to accommodate long term housing to all people who require support.
Voluntary Euthanasia
With appropriate safeguards, all consenting adults should have the right to choose how and when to end their own life.
Poverty
Appropriate social security should be available to all members of society who require assistance. No person should be lacking in the basics of food and adequate shelter.
Religious Privilege 
Having the ‘right’ to discriminate against people because of your religious beliefs should not occur anywhere apart from who you allow to enter or work in your place of worship, these ‘privileges’ should not extend to religious schools, hospitals or charities.
