What is Humanism?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion.

Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility.

It advocates the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.

Free of supernaturalism, it recognizes human beings as a part of nature and holds that values--be they religious, ethical, social, or political--have their source in human experience and culture. 

Humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
-- The American Humanist Association

 Support HAGP While Grocery Shopping

HAGP has been accepted into Giant’s Cash for Causes program. It’s an easy way to support HAGP. Here’s how it works: HAGP buys cards from Giant at a 5% discount. We then resell them to members, family, neighbors and friends who use the gift cards just like cash when they do their grocery shopping at Giant. You can use them with your Giant discount card if you have one. Every time you use a card you support our programs. Cards are available in $50 denominations, but you can buy as many as you want. Members can pay with a check, but otherwise please pay in cash. Please see Ro Horstman at movie night, book night, or program meeting to buy a card.
