Humanist Network News

 

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.

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.
