What we're about

The Ethical Humanists of Atlanta meet for discussion, exploration and sharing on topics of ethics, living a life of meaning, and creating a world that is just, equitable, and sustainable. Ethical Societies, which exist in about 22 cities in the US [ http://www.aeu.org ], are humanist and non-theistic (meaning: not believing that our fate is bound to the supernatural or to a God). We can develop more meaningful and fulfilling friendships and a richer community by bringing out the best in others and thereby bringing out the best in oneself.

We meet on the fourth Sunday of each month for a fun time in a thoughtful atmosphere of conversation and sharing. Each meeting will begin with a featured topic in focus. From time to time there may be a guest speaker. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!

For Virtual Documentary Night we are meeting to talk about the documentary, Ecuador Se Leavana.

This documentary follows a disaster relief mission that began just days after this tragic catastrophe.

This event is hosted in collaboration with multiple meetup groups, including the Atlanta Social Friends, Austin Documentary Fans, Atlanta Volunteer Meetup, the Ethical Humanists of Atlanta, Sunday Assembly Atlanta, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives.

This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way. You can check out the Community Documentary Night website for more info or links to previously shown documentaries.
