What we're about

Humanists of Southeast Michigan began in 1977 as a membership chapter of the American Humanist Association, a non-profit educational organization. The purpose of the Humanists of Southeast Michigan has been to promote the ideals of the "Humanist Manifesto - Humanism and its Aspirations" that express an ethical, democratic, naturalistic life-stance that challenges irrationality, promotes critical thinking and the separation of church and state. We present a system of Humanist ethics that is a rational alternative to those based in religion and encourage connections among thoughtful people in our community. We presently are looking to revive our formal status with the AHA, and invite all who share our ideals to participate with us.
