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.
Let’s Increase Access to Secular Recovery Programs
Anyone who faces the task of confronting an addiction will find barriers. These barriers can be so daunting that a person who needs help often cannot see getting beyond them — and may turn their backs on pursuing the idea any further. “What about the friends I might lose?” “Will I have to go into a treatment program?” “What will happen to my job if I need to take time off?” “What will my family, friends, or other loved ones think of me?” And of course, “Can I even do this?”
