What we're about

Our mission is to advance humanism, an ethical and life-affirming philosophy free of belief in any gods and other supernatural forces. Advocating for equality for non-theists and a society guided by reason, empathy, and our growing knowledge of the world, the Humanist Forum promotes a worldview that encourages individuals to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good.

We include humanists, agnostics, atheists, freethinkers, skeptics, religious naturalists, interested theists, and anyone else who wishes to attend. Our discussion topics include issues relating to morality and ethics, human development, evolution, the nature of the universe, love, the capacities of the brain, free will, the latest scientific research and discoveries, and other topics of mutual interest. Our events are open to the public.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) chapter of the American Humanist Association.
