The Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia is a community of individuals dedicated to nurturing more meaningful and engaged lives. We meet each Sunday at 11:00AM to seek wisdom, nurture compassion, and stoke humanist inspiration. We believe that deed is more important than creed, and we work as individuals and together to allow all people to be safe, educated and empowered. Our shared values include respecting the worth of every person, building ethical relationships, and establishing social justice. We are non-theist, embracing neither atheism nor theism, choosing instead to focus on “the hear and now” through cooperative naturalistic solutions to local and global challenges.

Here at our community home you’ll find thoughtful classes, humanist celebrations, and opportunities to join others working for social justice while having fun! In Philadelphia, since 1885, the Ethical Humanist Society has served as a meeting place for many progressive groups, including currently Pennsylvanians for an Alternative to the Death Penalty and Amnesty International. We are part of the American Ethical Union and are affiliated though this federation with the Secular Coalition for America. Visit us at 1906 Rittenhouse Square or on-line at phillyethics.org or contact Leader Hugh Taft-Morales at LeaderHugh@phillyethics.org.

    "I'm Dan, from the Freethought Society. The Ethical Society is one of my favorite organizations. They get up and do the things that need doing. I am an atheist who is as appalled by libertarians as their prosperity gospel partners in coarse elitism."

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
