Meet other local Humanists, people who believe in the basic goodness of the human spirit without supernaturalism
____________ _______________

The Washington Area Secular Humanists (WASH) was incorporated in 1989 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization in Maryland. Our purpose is to promote scientific literacy and critical thinking, to provide a forum for humanists and others to explore humanist principles and how they relate to all aspects of human experience, and to study the significance of humanism throughout history. Secular humanists are distinguished by an emphasis on scientific methods of knowing, separation of church and state, and a commitment to the pursuit of humanist goals outside religious frameworks.

Use the "About" link above to see what WASH offers you.

WASH is a Cooperating Local Group of the Council for Secular Humanism, an affiliate of the American Humanist association, and a member of Atheist Alliance International.

Many of our members are also involved with:
Center for Free Inquiry
Americans United for the Separation of Church and State
The Secular Coalition of America
