A Center for Inquiry Program - SECULAR RESCUE - Saving Freedom. Saving Lives.

Around the world, militant extremists have harassed, attacked, and murdered secularists and dissidents for daring to promote and defend secular government and fundamental human rights. In some countries, including most recently Bangladesh, this problem is particularly severe, and new threats emerge across the globe every day.

Secular Rescue is a program of the Center for Inquiry designed to provide emergency assistance to writers, bloggers, publishers, and activists who face threats due to their beliefs or expressions regarding religion.

Thank you for deciding to become a hero for these secular writers! 

Generous public support has allowed the Center for Inquiry to assist more than thirty individuals and their families in escaping to safety, either temporarily or permanently.

Read about some of our biggest success stories here.

Your gift today will ensure that other activists can escape truly harrowing threats to their lives and those of their families.

One hundred percent of all donations to Secular Rescue go directly to the writers and activists. And your gift is tax-deductible. Thank you for making a difference today!

(This program was originally launched as the Freethought Emergency Fund in 2015 and relaunched as Secular Rescue on International Blasphemy Rights Day 2016.)
