That any person, organisation, or group of persons has the freedom to choose no alignment to beliefs or religion. That they may do so without being disadvantaged, face discrimination, or be subjected to legal recrimination. That this choice is available to each individual in South Africa in both private and public society throughout their life.


To ensure our message is broad enough to attract new members and ensure it, as well as provide information to the public. It is our intention to provide the following three support structures


    Secularism in South Africa

    Secularism is the strict separation of religious institutions from the state, and the recognition of all people as equal before the law, regardless of religion or lack thereof. South Africa’s Bill of Rights (1997) is a Human Rights Charter protecting the civil, political and socio-economic rights of all citizens. Section 15 of this Bill enshrines the right to freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief, and opinion. Secularism/non-belief/atheism is, however, still very much stigmatised in our country.

    At SASS it is our intent to engage in a meaningful way with organisations, the public, the government, and institutions in order to provide information, education, and support, and promulgate freedom of choice that is also free from discrimination to interested parties..
