Calendar

Every month, we host a wide-ranging selection of events — from presentations to activism, workshops to socializing, and more. Whatever humanism means to you, you can probably find an activity to express and explore it. Check out all the upcoming events and ways to connect with others who share your secular values.

Our events and activities calendar is currently hosted at Meetup.com. We invite you to join us engaged world citizens for thought-stimulating presentations, lively discussions, and working together to make the world a better place for all.
