The organisation partnered in the September 2019 climate strikes and led the protests in Navi Mumbai, India.
Sapiens Foundation is currently spearheading a campaign, the Right to Be Secular, aimed at calling upon the United Nations to defend people irrespective of their religion, belief or non-belief, and to incorporate the rights of the non-believers in the Human Rights Declaration of 1948.
Sapiens Foundation is a successor of organisations that were active in the social reformation movement in Maharashtra, India. It works towards creating scientific temper and free spirit of enquiry in society, and eradicating superstitions. It is also a member of Federation of Indian Rationalists Associations, an umbrella body of secularist organisations in India.
