We are the people living in the Boston Metropolitan area (extending into southern New Hampshire and parts of Rhode Island) who believe in Humanism and a humanistic worldview. We like to get together with each other, and other secular and freethinking people, in formal or informal humanistically-oriented activities, such as our speakers, Small Group Discussion, and luncheon meetings, as well as the occasional film or community event. We also try to promote other relevant secular and humanistic events from other chapters and groups in this geographical area. Ask to be on our email list for free newletter or check this site and FB frequently.

We are a membership organization and chapter of the American Humanist Association. We were founded in 1972 as Humanist Association of Massachusetts and helped seed many of the other great local secular and humanist groups in the state. Any donation of $35 or more constitutes membership, but we welcome any amount. For an address to send checks, please contact us here on Meetup or Facebook.

Equinox Lunch/Talk: Marie Manis on 'Values, Choices and Life's Last Chapter'

We'll gather to celebrate the recent Equinox, with a Luncheon on Sunday March 31 featuring an Indian buffet meal at the India Pavilion in Central Square Cambridge, followed by special guest speaker Marie Manis. The topic is "'Should we have CHOICE at the END OF LIFE?': Values, Choices and Life's Last Chapter". Throughout our lives we make important decisions for ourselves: where to study, where to live, with whom to spend our life, what to do for a living. Decisions about our health and well-being -- even at the end of life -- often go on the back burner. Marie Manis, MA Campaign Manager for Compassion & Choices will share her knowledge and wisdom about one of life’s most important choices - our end of life plans. She’ll also talk about aid-in-dying legislation which is under consideration currently in the MA State Legislature, co-sponsored by more than 60 lawmakers . . . and what you can do to support it. The India Pavillion in Central Square Cambridge (vegetarian options, only $14 per person for all you care to eat, not including drinks; bring cash or check, please). Parking in Cambridge is free on Sundays in metered and some non-metered spots, and several garages and lots in Central Square including several just steps away on Green Street. MBTA red line Central Square station and associated bus stops are also within the block. RSVP here, or via Facebook, or by responding to your email list email, but NOT all three, please, so we can give the restaurant a good sense of our size. Thanks! (STAY TUNED TO BOSTONHUMANISTS.ORG for our semi-monthly Humanist Small Group Meetings and our late April Lecture Meeting!)
