CHA Vision Statement
• We believe in equal rights for all human beings.
• Our life stance is respectfully based on scientific reasoning and logic rather than on gods, myths or supernaturalism to make decisions about the natural world.
• As a positive, secular Humanist community, we celebrate life events together, participate in charitable and community events, and collaborate with other groups with similar goals.
• We believe in bettering ourselves through knowledge, ethical living, and appreciating the arts and nature so we can better control the destiny of this one life we know we have.
