Who We Are
HumanistsMN is a secular community that promotes ethical living, widespread human flourishing, and a healthy planet through its commitment to science, reason, compassion, and creativity.
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism or other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good.
Humanist Community Gathering
3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21
This month HumanistsMN welcomes Kate Cohen to our Community Gathering. She is a Washington Post contributing columnist and author of the forthcoming book We of Little Faith: Why I Stopped Pretending to Believe (and Maybe You Should Too).
