• What we'll do Join HRI in supporting the March for Our Lives -- inspired by, created by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become far too familiar. Change is coming and it starts now. Please join in taking action, as we fight for a country that is free from gun violence. The hope is to gather as many people in our community as well as local high schools and universities to march on March 24th, 2018 starting in front of the Rhode Island State House. This is to be a peaceful and eye opening rally.

What we're about

Public Group

The Humanists of Rhode Island (HRI) is committed to volunteer service and political activism for social justice. Our values are rooted in reason, compassion, optimism and action.

We are an active group always looking for new ideas and new members.

HRI is a member of the Rhode Island Reproductive Justice Coalition and an award winning member of Volunteers Beyond Belief. We are a charter member of the American Humanist Association and have worked with many other national, secular organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and the Freedom from Religion Foundation.

HRI is proud of our longstanding monthly commitment to Habitat for Humanity, and our four times a year commitment to our Highway Cleanup. In addition, we participate annually in a walk for a cure for leukemia, raise money for victims of domestic violence and most recently, Syrian refugee relief. We are beginning a relationship with Amnesty International.

Our commitment to secular government and the separation of church and state has made headlines. We successfully petitioned the City of Providence to remove a cross from a public median strip and have placed a seasonal banner celebrating the birth of our state's founder, Roger Williams, in the RI State House during the holiday season. We make frequent trips to the State House to testify on bills important to the progressive, secular community.

Help us change the the world and summon a better future for everyone.
