Black Humanists win Faith & Belief award

You can see the London Faith & Belief Community Awards live at 7pm on Monday 30 November on Facebook

The Association of Black Humanists has learned it is among winners to be honoured at the London Faith & Belief Community Awards 2020 in late November.

The group, which SELHuG proudly nominated for the Health & Wellbeing category, provides support to people, especially from the African diaspora, who experience hostility and isolation because of their beliefs as atheists and humanists.

The association, formerly London Black Atheists, has been supporting an average of 80 people a year since 2012. It holds regular meetings in Tower Hamlets – currently on Zoom – as well as conferences and socials, and is actively engaged in the wider human rights movement.

The Faith & Belief Forum, the organisation behind the awards, aims to build “a connected and supportive society where people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures have strong, productive and lasting relations… These awards celebrate the creative, generous and vital work of London’s faith and belief communities by bringing together local heroes and shining a light on their inspirational work.”
