MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: A New Year, a New HNN

Posted January 08, 2014

Happy New Year, HNN readers! Already, things are off to a great start here at the American Humanist Association. Joining us on staff is Nonbeliever Nation author and former AHA president David Niose, who will be heading up the Appignani Humanist Legal Center. We’ve added several major speakers to our AHA Conference (June 5-8, 2014 in Philadelphia) lineup, including New York Times science writer Natalie Angier, feminist author Jessica Valenti, and Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans of the Sunday Assembly (conference registration will open this week, but you can book your room now). And my San Diego Chargers are in the divisional playoffs! Okay, that’s not relevant to humanism at all, but I am really, really happy about it.

As I hinted in my last Message From the Editor, big changes are coming to Humanist Network News, and we can’t wait to share the news. In the meantime, what would you like to see HNN cover in 2014? What do you like best or least about HNN? Write to us at hnn@americanhumanist.org.

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: A Heartfelt Thank You at Year’s End

Posted December 18, 2013

It’s been another great year for the American Humanist Association! In 2013 we had over 50,000 media hits mentioning AHA and our activities, nearly doubled the number of Humanist Celebrants, re-introduced the Darwin Day Resolution and National Day of Reason Proclamation in Congress, our “under God” lawsuit was heard by the highest court in Massachusetts, and much more. We have some big plans for Humanist Network News in 2014, but you’ll have to wait until January to hear the news. In the meantime, help us reach 50,000 subscribers before the end of the year by encouraging your family and friends to get HNN in their inbox each week.

Thanks again for reading, commenting, and sharing Humanist Network News all year. From all of us at the American Humanist Association, we hope you have a wonderful holiday!
