Our members advocate for policies that reflect humanist values, including those that promote justice and a healthy planet. We protest (as necessary), communicate with political leaders and the public, and directly help people in need.
Community is the core of our work and events. Whether we’re learning together, helping each other, or socializing, HMN members and friends know how to have fun while making a positive contribution to the one world we all live in.
Avoiding Meat: Just a Short Journey from Humanism
It is no surprise to me that many humanists are vegetarians. Preserving the lives of animals feels like a natural byproduct of a worldview that values compassion and ethics. Even outside of humanism, avoiding meat is becoming increasingly common. According to studies done by the sustainable lifestyle app abillion, “In the past two years, we’ve…seen the growing prominence of flexitarians, pescatarians and omnivores in the plant-based market. These consumer groups are called reducetarians. In simple terms, they are people who actively reduce their intake of meat and animal-based products, but do not completely give up meat or dairy.”
