HumanistsMN Commits to Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The HMN Board has adopted a Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and voted to set up an advisory committee to explore ways we can be more inclusive in our programs, messaging, interpersonal relationships, volunteer activities, and community engagement.

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.

About Humanism

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.

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.
