What we're about

The Chicago Ethical Humanist Circle is a humanistic religious fellowship that is part of the American Ethical Union (AEU.org), and, through the AEU, Humanists International (nee International Humanist and Ethical Union). We focus on human lives and relationships. We explore what it means to live ethically as individuals, family members, and participants in the larger community. We have no creeds and no doctrines, but we are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of each individual and our commitment to working together to create a more just, humane, and peaceful world.
