The purpose of Bay Area Humanists is to promote humanism in San Francisco and East Bay.  We do this by sponsoring a range of activities including lectures, discussions, social service, outings and parties.  We want to build a sense of community for those who identify with the humanist philosophy.  If you would like to be part of this community, please join this Meet Up.  We are a chapter of the American Humanist Association.  Our understanding of humanism is taken from  “Humanism and Its Aspirations also know as Humanist Manifesto III

“Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.”

You can learn more about Bay Area Humanists at our website and Facebook page.
