Our mission is to create a supportive and vibrant non-theist community in Eastern Iowa through secular education, community, and political activism and the promotion of reason, compassion, and critical thinking.
We envision a world where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way of life, where science, reason, compassion, and creativity guide both public policy and personal accountability and where contributions to the greater good of humanity and the planet allow all individuals to lead ethical lives of personal fulfilment.
What is Humanism?
Humanism is an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human matters rather than the divine or supernatural. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.
