The IAS (International Association of Scientologists) is the official membership organization of Scientology. It was formed in 1984 with the purpose to unite, advance, support and protect the Scientology religion and Scientologists in all parts of the world so as to achieve the Aims of Scientology as originated by L. Ron Hubbard:
“A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights.”
For more than three decades, the IAS has stood true to its purpose, sponsoring worldwide social salvage programs, social betterment footholds, Ideal Organizations in strategic cultural epicenters, Ideal Advanced Organizations and the dissemination of Scientology on a global scale.
PROGRAMS IAS GRANTS HELP MAKE POSSIBLE
Citizens Commission on Human Rights
To eradicate psychiatric abuse for good, the IAS grants fund an international CCHR campaign. This multi-phased program is designed to inform, activate and outrage, and so legislate out of existence this industry of death.
United for Human Rights
Designed to educate, activate and create global support for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United for Human Rights provides educators the tools they need to bring human rights to life in their classrooms.
The Truth About Drugs
To address the global problem of drug abuse, the IAS grants make possible the Truth About Drugs program, one of the largest drug education initiatives planetwide. The program is made available free of charge to influential figures—such as sheriffs, school resource officers or teachers—able to widely implement it in their zone.
The Way to Happiness
To fill the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society, the IAS grants sponsor widespread distribution of The Way to Happiness booklets. Passed hand to hand, its purpose is to help arrest the current moral decline in society and restore integrity and trust to Man. That’s how the IAS has helped reach hundreds of millions with The Way to Happiness.
