Humanist Network News, or HNN, is a weekly Internet magazine produced by the American Humanist Association (AHA). A typical edition of HNN contains news, opinion, lifestyle pieces, cartoons and humor...just like a regular newspaper except each piece addresses the nonreligious philosophy of humanism. HNN articles are written by the staff of the AHA and a variety of guest writers. HNN is published every Wednesday.

We here at the American Humanist Association love to come up with new ideas to promote humanism. Every week, we meet in the conference room at our offices in Washington DC to brainstorm ideas on everything from Facebook campaigns (like the Sounds Like Humanism series) to billboard slogans (“Don’t believe in God? Join the club.”) to new programs (Kids Without God). With the launch of a new humanist media website in just a few weeks, we’d like to hear your ideas! What would you like to see covered in future issues of Humanist Network News? What political or social issues should humanists take on? Do you just like the comics section? Are we perfect and shouldn’t change a thing? We’d love to hear from you. Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
