Hi SF Humanists,
I will keep the SF Humanists Meetup going. Thanks to Cameo Wood who started the Meet Up and George Cunningham who has kept it going the last few months. I would like to have a meeting in September so we can get to know one another. We will share our philosophies/life-stances and discuss what Humanism means to each of us. We need to find a few members of this Meet Up group who are willing to be on the Leadership Team with me to help plan future events. Let me know if you can help.
Please let me know if you are interested in attending this meeting, the days of the week and times you would be available. I will get us a space to meet. At this point I am considering the Women's building [masked]th Street), the GLBT Center (1800 Market St) or perhaps Fort Mason. If you have a preference for any of these or have other suggestions, let me know.
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.”
