Legal Fund: Fundraising Campaign
for our Court Intervention in Support of Bill 21

Bill 21

We, Atheist Freethinkers, will make a formal request to Quebec Superior Court, to allow us to intervene in case 500-17-108353-197 initiated by Ichrak Nourel Hak, with the support of the CCLA and the NCCM, against Quebec Bill 21, An Act respecting the laicity of the State, defended by the Attorney-General of Quebec. Our intervention will be as a friend and in support of Bill 21, that is for secularism.

Our intervention will be based on numerous arguments in favour of the Act, the principal one being that Bill 21 extends and reinforces the rights and freedoms of the population by imposing religious neutrality on State employees in positions of authority, while they are on the job, thus protecting the freedom of conscience of users of public services and of pupils in public schools.

We seek the support and solidarity of anyone who, like us, supports secularism and recognizes the landmark importance of Bill 21 and the necessity of defending it against the well-funded and reactionary forces who are attempting to turn back the tide of secularization of the Quebec State.

To bring this intervention to a successful conclusion, we require several thousand dollars, which represents a considerable challenge for a modest organization such as ours, with very limited resources. We ask you therefore to donate to our legal fund so we may complete this process. Any amount, big or small, is welcomed and appreciated.
