What we're about

Austin Humanist Community provides a caring, safe, and intellectually stimulating environment for humanists. By holding regular meetings, planning social activities, and organizing outreach and volunteer opportunities, we empower our members to grow as individuals, connect with other like-minded, secular people, and enrich the lives of those in need, both inside and outside our community.

Every Sunday at 11 am, we meet to enjoy live music, hear presentations by members and outside speakers, and make new friends. Our talks are grounded in reason and celebrate the human experience; our actions stem from the notion that meaning comes from making a difference. And please join us for lunch afterwards at a nearby restaurant!

Beyond the Sunday Gathering, our community engages in other activities including local volunteerism, potlucks, game nights, and cultural outings. For more information, please visit us online at http://www.austinhumanist.org/ .

Sunday Gathering: Father's Day Edition

Online event

We all have or have had fathers, biological or otherwise. Most of us have been fathers or have had the experience of caring for a child. On this Father’s Day, AHC member George Agich will lead a group discussion on how our fathers influenced our lives (for good or bad). And for those of us who are fathers or have been dad-like figures, we'll also talk about how we've influenced the lives of children. ****TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION: Go to this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84288714667 Remember that we hold all Zoom attendees to our member Code of Conduct which you can read here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QoDWTZBY6WiapPMh1gGA_zA42TcNgxy26cFYMSEzofw/edit?usp=sharing _______________ ~ Weekly attendance is approximately 20 people ~ To learn more about AHC, go to https://austinhumanist.org/.
