Resources for Humanist Communities

As representatives of AHA, Celebrants, Humanist Ministers and Chaplains are in a unique position to work with their communities in promoting humanism. The Humanist Communities Project, working in conjunction with other like-minded organizations, provides you with the tools and programs to help you promote your humanistic values and ideals. We encourage all Humanist Society members to be active in their local organizations and help us put our philosophy forward. And of course, the Humanist Society itself – staff, Officers and other members, are always willing to help with these endeavors.
