Dear Meetup friends,
The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego is dedicated to advancing the principles and values of Humanism, and encouraging within our community a reliance on rational thinking rather than superstitious dogma.
HFSD provides opportunities for our members to investigate different issues and philosophies from an enlightened, humanist perspective. We are also mindful that all people benefit from sharing their lives with others, so we try to squeeze in social events whenever possible! Throughout the year the Fellowship offers:
  • Lectures and discussions
  • Monthly Book Club
  • Films and documentaries
  • Picnics, lunches, holiday celebrations
  • HFSD Website and Meetup Group
  • Facebook and Twitter sharing/outreach
  • Outreach to underserved populations including seniors and children
  • Active leadership in secular events such as the Richard Dawkins event, Earth Fair, Pride Parade, Light the Night Walk, State Chapter of the Secular Coalition for America, Secular Outreach in Balboa Park, the American Humanist Association Conference, etc.
The volunteer leaders of the Humanist Fellowship are committed to meeting the intellectual and social needs of our members, and to giving Humanism an active presence in the San Diego community.
Will you help us to achieve these goals?
Meetup is meant to be an easy way to form friendships and create community with likeminded neighbors. But as you know from your associations within the secular community, Meetup has become a powerful vehicle for organizing freethinkers so that their collective voice is amplified. In order to influence public policy, protect the civil rights of nonbelievers, and challenge at every opportunity the religious assault on science and secular values, we MUST support our secular organizations.
By joining or renewing your membership today you help the Humanist Fellowship cover basic operating and programming expenses.  If you are able, please consider an additional donation that will fund honorariums for speakers, larger meeting venues, and will allow us to continue offering most of our events free to the public. All contributions to HFSD are tax deductible, and you are welcome to earmark your donation for a particular purpose. Your personal commitment to the Fellowship will enable us to continue providing the activities you enjoy, and will allow us to develop new programs that will expand our outreach efforts to families with children.
There are many worthwhile groups in San Diego that form the San Diego Coalition of Reason. Please support as many as you can.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we thank you for your participation in Meetup, and hope you will become a member of the Fellowship soon!

Debbie Allen
HFSD President
