Lehigh Valley Humanists is a chapter of the American Humanist Association. As secular humanists, we strive to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted way to live life. Humanism encompasses a variety of nontheistic views (atheism, agnosticism, rationalism, naturalism, secularism, and so forth) while adding the important element of a comprehensive worldview and a set of ethical values- values that are grounded in the philosophy of the Enlightenment, informed by scientific knowledge, and driven by a desire to meet the needs of people in the here and now. We promote human rights, civil liberties, the scientific method, and the democratic process in an open, secular, and humane society. Lehigh Valley Humanists provides education, support, and outreach about humanism in an effort to build a vibrant community based around a positive ethical lifestance.
