What we're about

This group is operated by American Humanist Association (2/9/2022).

Welcome to the largest local community of Atheists, Humanists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists, Rationalists, and friends in the Washington DC Metro Area! We host a variety of events each month in DC, Suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia (currently online due to COVID) as well as ongoing discussion on Meetup and Facebook.

We're deeply concerned about maintaining Constitutional separation of Church and State and protecting human rights - but we're also interested in building a community. With that in mind, we offer a combination of social, educational, community service, and activist events. We strive to provide a supportive social environment for folks breaking away from religious traditions or looking to connect with others on shared values.

We also encourage you to become a member of the American Humanist Association at americanhumanist.org/join and explore the website for materials and events on humanism.

The suggested donation is strictly voluntary and is considered a contribution to help offset the costs of running this group. Financial contribution is not required to become a member of the group, however they are appreciated.
