HNPS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization committed to positive social change through advocacy and education. We focus on issues relating to the separation of church and state, the importance of a secular democracy, human rights, environmental sustainability and peaceful solutions to global problems.
Humanism embraces the principles of the Enlightenment that our Founding Fathers fought so hard to establish and protect: education, science, reason, tolerance, secular democracy, rule of law, self-government, fairness, civility and equal rights for all.
Humanists believe that through education, reason and science, we can each live fair, self-reliant, ethical and peaceful lives.
Humanists are among the 20% of Americans (and growing) who follow no religion or other mythologies.
Humanists affirm that we must each take responsibility for our lives, our communities and the world in which we live.
One of our fellow freethinkers, Thomas Paine, said, “We have it in our power to start the world again.”
Creator or no creator, this is the only world we have and we must all work together to preserve and protect it.
