What we're about

WELCOME!

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.

Coffee Talk Zoom discussion

Online event

Note that the RSVP list usually understates the number of attendees by quite a bit. We do get a good turnout and we do have great conversations. Everybody is respectful of each other and everyone gets to talk more than enough.

Until further notice, all of these Thursday morning coffee Meetups, that were at Jarrod's, will be using Zoom. Zoom is a web-based conferencing tool and is especially suited for just this type of situation. You may want to download Zoom prior to the meeting and you can do so here: https://zoom.us/download (call-in by phone is also available. See instructions below). Bring your own coffee!!. CONTACT ME AT [masked] if you want to help keep Jarrod in business during this rough time!!

To join the meeting (you're welcome to join 5 minutes before - we will start at 10:00 am), use this URL in your web browser. NOTE: you can join any time during the call so don't worry about being late! But you might miss something cool, so get on as soon as you can.

Richard Dewey is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
