Campaigning for Fair Admissions – Richy Thompson
Join the facebook event here!
20:00, Tuesday 12th November, Liverpool Guild of Students, 160 Mount Pleasant.
Liverpool faces a unique set of conditions as a historically very religious city, with a reduced population, as well as being the home seat for the former Shadow Education Secretary, Stephen Twigg MP. Richy will be advising us on how to deal with these factors as part of a campaign.
Richy is currently the Campaigns Officer for the British Humanist Association and an expert on issues relating to religious selection in schools. He has been President of Oxford’s AHS society, the founder of Oxford Think Week, Press Officer then President of the AHS, Campaigns Volunteer for the European Humanist Federation before becoming the BHA’s lead campaigner on education and faith schools.
This event is hosted by the University of Liverpool Humanist Society, a student group. You don’t have to be a member to attend – anyone who is interested in the campaign is welcome.
We will not charge for entry, but will accept donations to cover costs such as speaker expenses. We request a donation of £2 per person.
