What we're about


HSGP is a warm and welcoming community of people with open minds and lots of questions. While we have a lot of diverse opinions and interests, we are accepting and tolerant of differing ideas and positions. While non-belief in the supernatural brought many of us together, our belief in the essential goodness of humanity and dedication to open discussion keeps us together and helps us grow. We have only one life and we strive to make it a good one for ourselves and for others. We are home to people with a wide range of beliefs and positions such as: humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, and nones. That covers a lot of ground!

In addition to our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/HumanistSociety/), we offer a variety of activities to support our Humanist goals and we are always looking for more ways to socialize, learn, and help others. We have a community center near downtown Mesa! Be sure to check us out at our Game nights, Sunday Speaker meetings, or other events.

To learn more, go to our website at www.HSGP.org (http://www.hsgp.org/). There you will find more information about HSGP and our scheduled events. If you are not a member, please consider becoming a paid member (http://hsgp.org/Become-A-Member?frm=join). Your support keeps the building open and the activities running. If you’re not ready to commit to a membership, please join us at one of our free and open to the public events where we hope you will find like-minded individuals. Thank you and we look forward to meeting you!

About Humanism (from the American Humanist Association)
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

Let's Geography!

Humanist Community Center

Let's Geography! Topic: Costa Rica How many countries can you identify on a blank map? How many countries can you name even if you don't know right where they are? If you feel you need to brush up on some geography, come learn with us. If you already know everything, come show off. We promise to be impressed! One evening a month we will meet to discuss a country somewhere in the world, locate it on a map, and share everything we have been able to find out about it. There’s so much to learn: people, rivers, cities, language, mountains, food, customs, music, exports, politics, weather, philosophy. We’ll all teach and learn together, and then we’ll choose a country for next time. Wi-fi is available so bring your devices if you have them and look stuff up on the fly. Better yet, look stuff up before you come, anything at all about this month's country that interests you, so you can share what you have learned with the rest of us. Also bring any suggestions for restaurants for our Let's Eat Geography Meetup. Hosted by Teresa Cokl the third Thursday of each month. Please go to our website to learn all about HSGP: http://hsgp.org
