The American Humanists Association strives to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted way to live life. They are accomplishing this through defense of our civil liberties and secular governance, through the outreach to the growing number of people without traditional religious faith, and through a continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview.
Humanism encompasses a variety of nontheistic views (atheism, agnosticism, rationalism, naturalism, secularism, and so forth) while adding the important element of a comprehensive worldview and set of ethical values – values that are grounded in the philosophy of the Enlightenment, informed by scientific knowledge, and driven by a desire to meet the needs of people in the here and now.
AHA counts humanists and other nontheists as the core of the movement but are always willing to work with friends and allies on issues of common concern. The positions they hold and the actions they take are not simply for AHA’s benefit, but for the betterment of all of society and the world in which we live.
