With members from all over Central Massachusetts, Greater Worcester Humanists is an active chapter of the American Humanist Association. We provide a welcoming environment and a range of activities for area humanists, freethinkers, atheists, skeptics and agnostics.
We are a hub of activity for humanism in Greater Worcester, raising public awareness and acceptance of humanism and thereby strengthening the progressive, reason-based worldview in our area and providing resistance to the ultraconservative views of the religious right. Humanism is a movement of diverse individuals, and therefore GWH welcomes humanists from all backgrounds. We value humanity's diversity of race, gender, age, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.
We have regular meetings, guest speakers, movie screenings, discussions of timely topics, and social activities, etc. We also celebrate humanist holidays such as Darwin Day, Freethought Day, Human Light, and the National Day of Reason. Most of our meetings are free and open to the public. We meet once a month, usually at the UU Church in Worcester, MA and have other social events that will be listed at this site and on our website worcesterhumanists.org.
