What we're about

This is a group that relies on human creativity, reason, and effort. We promote arts and technology. We enjoy looking for and contributing to scientific and historical knowledge. We volunteer and collaborate to improve our communities. It's our hope to establish local centers and popular universities where the community can come together to celebrate the humanities, share information, and refine each person's ethical freedom.

Feel free to suggest your own events in the suggestion tab. When two other members say they will participate, the event will be announced to the group.
