What we're about

The Humanists of Iowa a.k.a. the Humanist Society of Iowa, a chapter of the American Humanist Association , promotes the discussion of ideas and issues related to Secular Humanism. The group meets the second Monday of each month at 7 pm at the First Unitarian Church of Des Moines. Anyone interested in humanism, science, philosophy, LGBT, free thinking, secularism, agnosticism, and atheism is encouraged to attend to meet people of similar interests.
