The National Secular Society

As a campaigning organisation, the National Secular Society has a strong tradition of tackling difficult questions and challenging the existing state of affairs.

Following in the footsteps of their founder, Charles Bradlaugh, the NSS held public meetings in the 1960s on a range of controversial issues. Theses included race relations, censorship, crime, education and birth control.

The meetings attracted well known speakers including the MP Micheal Foot, author John Mortimer, civil rights campaigner David Pitt, and birth control campaigner Dilys Cossey.
