Professor Richard Dawkins, Vice President and Distinguished Supporter of the British Humanist Association, has today been announced as the recipient of the prestigious Services to Humanism award, which will be presented at the gala dinner at the British Humanist Association Annual Conference in Cardiff on Saturday 9 June.
The award is in recognition of his tireless campaigning on issues supported by the BHA, which includes his sponsorship of the 2008 Atheist Bus Campaign which raised over £100,000 in its first four days, the 2009 Please don't label me billboard campaign which aimed to address the labelling children as if they innately belong to a particular religion, the 2010 Protest the Pope march and rally which saw over 10,000 people take to the streets to oppose the honour of a state visit being given to the Pope, and the 2011 Teach evolution, not creationism campaign which aims to ensure the Government makes it clear that creationism and ‘intelligent design’ are not scientific theories and to prevent them from being taught as such in publicly-funded schools.
