Enlighten Up campaign toolkit


We’ve been blown away by the fantastic response to our Enlighten Up campaign. If you’ve been keeping up to date with the campaign you may have seen that we held a panel at the SNP Spring Conference, hosted by Tommy Shepherd MP. You can now listen to the panel on our brand new podcast, either download from iTunes or listen directly here.

So far our petition has over 700 signatures, but there’s still so much more to be done. If you’ve already signed, please make sure you keep sharing far and wide. To help you spread the word we’ve put together this campaign toolkit, with sample tweets and Facebook posts. Feel free to use as many as you like, just copy and paste as is, or rewrite them if you prefer.

Currently all Scottish councils are required to appoint three religious representatives to their education committees. These religious representatives are unelected and unaccountable. I believe that all members of local education committees should be accountable to their communities through the ballot box, that’s why I’ve signed the #EnlightenUp petition by Humanist Society Scotland to bring an end to unelected religious reps. Visit /www.enlightenup.scot to get involved too.

Unelected religious representative are making decisions on education in communities across Scotland. All Scottish councils are required to appoint three religious reps. to their education committees. They hold the same voting rights as elected members, but are completely unaccountable to the people they represent. This is undemocratic, which is why I’ve signed the #EnlightenUp petition by Humanist Society Scotland. Get involved at www.enlightenup.scot
