Canvass for Ivana Bacik and Ruairi Quinn, Saturday 19 February
On Saturday week, 19 February, Atheist Ireland members will be spending two hours in the morning canvassing and dropping leaflets for Ivana Bacik in Dun Laoghaire, and two hours in the afternoon canvassing and dropping leaflets for Ruairi Quinn in Dublin South East.
These are the two members of the outgoing Oireachtas who have been most supportive on secular issues since Atheist Ireland was formed two years ago, and we want to actively help secular candidates to be elected.
If you are free to help with this canvass and leaflet drop, please email our lobbying officer Conor McGrath at lobbying(at)atheist.ie.
Also, Atheist Ireland has asked all general election candidates and political parties six questions about secular issues. You can read the questions and the replies that we have got so far on the General Election page of our website.
Next week we will publish an analysis of all of the replies, and of the party manifestos, and we will ask voters in all constituencies to support the candidates who are closest to our policies on secular issues.
