Our mission is to do good deeds, establish a sense of fellowship and community for the nonreligious, and to promote secular education and activism. Through doing good deeds, we aim to inspire people to do good for the sake of good. We foster a community of compassionate and rational individuals whose ethical behavior is not dependent upon belief in the supernatural. We support equality and fair treatment of all and promote humanism as a viable worldview. We welcome collaboration with others with an understanding that good deeds can be universally appreciated and respected.
We are an official chapter of the American Humanist Association and are located in Grand Junction, Colorado. We typically have one educational event, one social event, one volunteer event and one outdoor event (hiking, etc.) every month.
One of the prettiest and most secluded sections of the Riverfront Trail, we will have the chance to see plants, birds, and maybe a rabbit or two while hiking on a paved trail. Meet and park at the Safeway/Albertsons shopping center/Redlands Marketplace on Broadway. Park on the southwest end of the lot between the Mexican restaurant and the pet store. Bring binos, camera, water and whatever clothing that day's weather indicates! At least we won't have to worry about mud! This would be a great hike for kids! GJ Hikes rates this as "easy".
Join everyone for an evening of learning and discussion. 'White People' is a documentary that questions what it means to be white. It is a groundbreaking documentary on race that aims to answer that question from the viewpoint of young white people living in America today. It follows Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and filmmaker, Jose Antonio Vargas, as he travels across the country to get this complicated conversation started. ‘White People’ asks what’s fair when it comes to affirmative action, if colorblindness is a good thing, what privilege really means, and what it’s like to become the “white minority” in your neighborhood.
This event is not open to the general public and is intended for participants of Humanists Doing Good only.
This social brunch and newcomers meeting is intended to welcome people who are new to the organization and people who may not yet have attended an event. We'll take the opportunity to talk a little bit about Humanism, to answer any questions and to detail ways to get involved. We will also try to give anyone who is new some information about how the organization operates in our community.
We're asking veteran members to attend this meeting to help welcome people, share some of your experiences in the organization and we're asking our veterans to bring a dish to share (we're not asking new people to bring a dish). We'll also cover upcoming events and share ideas. If you have any ideas for this event, please feel free to contact us in advance.
