Talk by Richy Thompson – after brief AGM.
Richy Thompson, Humanists UK’s Director of Public Affairs and Policy, will talk about recent efforts to change the law on assisted dying. He’ll examine how things are, how we got here, and where we might go next, taking in the cases of Tony and Jane Nicklinson, Paul Lamb, Noel Conway, Omid T, and parliamentary efforts for reform.
Richy represents Humanists UK on the steering group of Voice for Choice, Accord Coalition for inclusive education, and the Fair Admissions Campaign. He was on the advisory group of the Sex Education Forum, Treasurer of the Religious Education Council of England and Wales, and humanist representative and Vice Chair of Lambeth Standing Advisory Council on RE.
At Humanists UK, he has proven himself a formidable campaigner, achieving widespread media coverage and policy change.
