The Rationalist Association is a registered charity in the United Kingdom which has two core aims (as expressed in our Memorandum and Articles): 1. The mental and moral improvement of the human race by means of the advancement of rationalism and humanism. 2. The advancement of education and in particular the study of rationalism and humanism and the dissemination of knowledge of their principles. We seek to stand as a counter-balance to dogma of every kind but particularly religion-inspired, and stand against the misuse of power and for human beings.
