Searching through our database of Uplift campaigns that members have set up, we wanted to take the lead from our members ahead of writing a blog around campaigning to separate the church and state. We came across these campaigns – some of many others.
We think this list says enough by itself.
These petitions are calls for change, practical steps and actions we can undertake to build a better Ireland together, but they are also stories. Please take some time to read and add your voice by signing any that particularly resonate with you.
