The Humanists of Georgia is dedicated to fostering a community of secular humanists in the Atlanta area. Humanism affirms the inherent dignity and worth of every human being, and asserts that persons are responsible for the realization of their aspirations and that they have within themselves the power of achieving them. Humanism is free from any belief in the supernatural and is dedicated to the search for meaning and values for individuals on this earth through reliance on intelligence and the scientific method, democracy, and social sympathy. Humanism contends that human beings are a part of nature, that they have emerged as a result of continuous evolutionary process and that all their values — religious, ethical, political and social — have their source in human experience and are the product of their culture.
The Humanists of Georgia is a membership organization dedicated to building a socially nurturing and intellectually stimulating Humanist community. The Humanists of Georgia strives to achieve its goals through public advocacy projects, social concerns programs, community outreach programs, and watchdog activities.
