Secularism 2019: Reclaim Religious Freedom was held by the National Secular Society on May 18th 2019 at the Tower Hotel in London.

What does “religious freedom” truly mean? While religious lobbyists commonly use terms like “religious freedom” to demand privileges, this conference served to highlight that true “religious freedom” means freedom of belief for people of all religions and none. The conference also explored the limits of religious freedom when it impinges on other human rights, including bodily autonomy, equality and freedom of expression.
